Exhibition

Forms, Voices, Networks

Feminism and the Media

The exhibition Forms, Voices, Networks explores the intersections between the growth of mass media and women’s rights movements in a transnational context during the 20th century. Centred on the histories of feminisms and the media in Britain, Germany and India, it draws attention to little-known or unheard voices and stories and draws connections between activists and the media across time and space.

Developed by the International Standing Working Group on Medialization and Empowerment
