Represent! Voices 100 Years On Exhibition

The recently acquired Manchester suffragette banner (1908) and a significant collection of suffrage material such as sashes, brooches, photographs and cartoons from the early 20th century are elements of the museum’s collection that will help to paint a picture of what representation meant in 1918. Working as an editorial team, community groups will be drawing inspiration and parallels from these historical pieces in their responses to issues of representation and equality that prevail in today’s society. Campaigning material from the present day groups including Manchester Women’s March, Repeal the 8th, and Votes at 16 are some of the voices that will be featured in the exhibition.
