Unfinished Business: The Fight for Women’s Rights

 
Unfinished Business: The Fight for Women’s Rights

This autumn the British Library will launch a major exhibition in London that explores contemporary debates around women’s rights and gender equality in the UK in the context of a long history of activism.

Leeds Libraries are creating their own version of Unfinished Business: The Fight for Women’s Rights using our local collections to explore Leeds’ unique contribution to the campaign for gender equality and reflecting the different experiences of women in the city.

Leeds has a strong history of female activism from the fight for suffrage, Reclaim the Night Marches, union strikes for fairer working conditions to the current campaign to make Leeds the first women friendly city. A virtual exhibition and programme of events in partnership with the British Library will bring together these local stories and connect them to the wider history of women’s rights.
