See Red Women's Workshop: Feminist Posters 1974-19

Details

See Red Women’s Workshop was a female-led printing collective founded in 1973 out of a shared desire to combat sexist images of women and to create positive and challenging alternatives. Women from different backgrounds came together to make posters and calendars that tackled issues of sexuality, identity and oppression. With humour and bold graphics, they expressed the personal experiences of women as well as their role in wider struggles for change.

To celebrate the book See Red Women’s Workshop: Feminist Posters 1974-1990, published by Four Corners Books [https://www.facebook.com/FourCornersBooks/], Village [https://villagebooks.co/] will be exhibiting a selection of the posters produced by See Red Women's Workshop over their nearly two decades of activity. Confronting negative stereotypes, questioning the role of women in society, and promoting women’s self-determination, the power and energy of these images reflect an important and dynamic era of women’s liberation; one that is just as relevant today.

The exhibition launches on the 9th February  at 6pm. R.S.V.P over on the Facebook event page [https://www.facebook.com/events/1725115071044300/].
