Dive In to Decoding Inequality: A Drop-In Workshop, Friday 8th March, 2.00pm to 4.00pm, Free
Take part in the games and activities that we’ve designed, and try your hand at writing your own museum labels. You’ll also get the chance to discover a new way to explore museums, through the “feminist museum hack”. This event is free, and open to all. Stay for as little or as long as you would like, and get ready to see museum exhibits in a new light!
The Decoding Inequality project has produced analyses of 40 objects from our collection to support an accessible understanding of how issues of (in)equality (across gender, class, sexuality, disability and race) are enacted and sustained in our society.
This exhibition supports visitors to consider the social history of objects relating to women’s history, illustrating their historical and contemporary inequality – and linking interpretation with political campaigns for reform such as reproductive rights, domestic abuse, maternity leave, equal pay, women’s suffrage, sexual harassment, and sexual violence.
This exhibition is fully accessible with audio tours and subtitled content.
Visit the exhibition during GWL opening hours.
These drop in sessions are free to attend, open to all, and there is no need to book. For general GWL opening times and how to get here see the ‘Where to Find Us’ section of the website.
