Posters are powerful. In the second of three exhibitions celebrating our 25th anniversary year, we spotlight graphic gems from the huge poster collection at GWL. The exhibition includes some of the cut and paste works created to spread the word about GWL in its infancy, posters raising awareness of women’s issues at home and internationally, works that promote women in the arts, and campaigning flyers for social and political change. All demonstrate how the poster format has and continues to be important to women, women’s groups and GWL.
