We want to include you in unlocking the personal meanings of objects in our collections.

Each day for the next 30 days we will tweet an image of an item from our stores. We will ask one simple question: What memories, emotions or stories do you see in this item?

Feel free to write as little or as much as you wish.

You can respond directly via twitter by replying or DMing us, or you can email us at info@womenslibrary.org.uk

Please let us know if you are happy to be identified as contributing to the exhibition, or if you would like to remain anonymous.

Each response will be included in the object description and will be exhibited as part of our Decoding Inequality project which launches on the 6th March 2019.

The Decoding Inequality project will produce analyses of 25 objects from our collection to support understanding of how issues of inequality (across gender, class, sexuality, disability and race) are enacted and sustained in our society.

If you have any questions please get in touch with Rachel Thain-Gray rachel.thain-gray@womenslibrary.org.uk or Hannah Wright Hannah.Wright@womenslibrary.org.uk

    Object 1 Reminds of the
    homophobic hysteria of Thatcherite Britain. The rage & disgust at #TheGayPlague. The solace my dear friend @SteveHornibrook found when @PrincessDiana held his hand.

    I have a picture of Steve with Princess Do, if you would like it. He is 26years dead but would still love the attention!

      Hi Natalie,

      We’ll pass this along to Rachel, who is coordinating the project, and we’ll be back in touch if we’re able to use this image.

      Best wishes,

      Hannah
