The Long March to Equality: Treasures of The Women’s Library exhibition brings the rarest items in the Library’s collections together for the first time. Spanning four hundred years, it tells the story of how women have fought and lobbied for equal rights in Britain. It invites visitors to delve in and discover: “the greatest collection of women’s history in the world.”
‘Treasures’ from the Library’s collection have been selected because they represent the most significant moments in women’s history, and evidence the remarkable achievements of campaigning women’s groups and individuals. Retold through a range of visual media, the exhibition uncovers a number of the most fascinating stories in British history.
You can hear from some of Britain’s best known voices, alongside second wave campaigners who have all recorded tracks within the audio guide. Look out for the blog posts
This blog will be running throughout the exhibition and beyond.
