Our spring exhibition marks 50 years since the beginnings of two significant social movements in the UK: the first women’s liberation conference in Oxford and the first UK meeting of the Gay Liberation Front at LSE.
This exhibition explores how both movements mobilised thousands of people to believe that they could change the world through speaking out and challenging the status quo.
The exhibition displays material from the Hall-Carpenter Archives and the Women’s Library and, in particular, it shows how activists used and transformed publishing, performance and visual imagery around gender.
