Mind Your Language…

February 2018 marks the centenary of the Campaign for Women’s Suffrage which was partly achieved by the Representation of the People Act 1918 – allowing women over the age of 30 the right to vote.

During the coming months, Collective Exchange will not only be reflecting on those turbulent times which surrounded the Suffrage Movement but will also be looking at how attitudes towards gender inequality have altered over the years, where they currently stand today and how much change is still needed for the future.

Through a series of workshops we will start by investigating language, specifically gender biased language, as a way of beginning an exploration of women’s place in society.

Two making sessions will be held in September with dates, venue and content details to follow.
