209 Women: Hilary Wood
Marking 100 years since the first women achieved the right to vote in a general election, this ambitious all-female exhibition from Open Eye Gallery features new portraits of women MPs from across the country, shot entirely by women photographers. The exhibition was first shown at the Houses of Parliament on 14 December 2018, 100 years to the day since the first general election in which women could vote. In Liverpool, the full set will be shown for the first time, including images of Sinn Fein MPs who refused to have their images shown in Parliament. It both makes and marks history, showing the progress that has been made towards gender parity in politics, whilst also highlighting the work that is still to be done. The exhibition is free and open to the public, and open every day (except mondays) from March 1st to April 14th.
Event Date: Thursday 28th February – Sunday 14th April 2019
LOCATION: Open Eye Gallery, Mann Island, Liverpool, UK
