                    A fairer world for everyone: the fight for women’s rights is unfinished business.

                    From bodily autonomy and the right to education, to self-expression and protest, this new exhibition explores how feminist activism in the UK has its roots in the complex history of women’s rights. With social and racial inequalities thrown into sharp relief by recent world events, join the debate and add your voice to the many fighting for a fairer world.

                    Be inspired by those who paved the way. Cornelia Sorabji, the first woman to study law at Oxford University. Hope Powell, the first British woman to gain the highest European football coaching license. Meet Suffragettes such as Sophia Duleep Singh and challengers of recent years such as those behind the No More Page 3 campaign.

                    Explore the work of contemporary activist groups working online and offline today. Get to grips with the causes they fight for, from ending period poverty and supporting refugee women to securing abortion rights and increasing the number of women and girls involved in science.

                    Works from artists including Khadija Saye and Jo Spence explore how art gives voice to the fight for self-representation. Protest fashion and banners created by organisations such as direct-action group Sisters Uncut, human rights advocates Southall Black Sisters, and the Women’s Liberation Movement are among the many diverse items featured in the exhibition.

                    Recognising that inequality is experienced differently depending on race, gender identity, class and sexuality, this exhibition celebrates those who have struggled to overcome the barriers to living a fully-realised life.

                    Generously supported by Joanna and Graham Barker.

                    This exhibition includes some items relating to the body, sexual and domestic violence, abortion, sex work and enslavement.

                    Khadija Saye: in this space we breathe

                    Your ticket for Unfinished Business: The Fight for Women’s Rights also includes admission to Khadija Saye: in this space we breathe, a display of nine powerfully evocative self-portraits by the Gambian-British artist that explore traditions of spirituality, and mark Saye’s concern with ‘how trauma is embodied in the black experience’. Saye and her mother tragically died in the Grenfell fire in 2017.

                    This display commemorates Saye’s enduring artistic legacy.
