WILPF, Zurich, 1919

To celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th, and the Centenary of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom in April, the Peace Museum is proud to present an exhibition exploring the efforts of women and women’s groups throughout history to campaign for peace and equality.The exhibition was originally meant to run from March through until May but due to popular demand we have extended this to include the rest of the summer months. The exhibition also features an extension of our permanent Greenham Common exhibition: Common Ground, Uncommon Women. It explores the history of the WILPF, the Cooperative Women’s Guild and includes banners and objects from various local, national and international women’s peace groups. The exhibition highlights how women’s groups have been at the forefront of campaigns, such as the extension of women’s rights, campaigns for equality and have been at the forefront of vocal and active opposition against nuclear weaponry. The Museum would welcome group visits to the view the exhibition, particularly those celebrating IWD and the centenary of the WILPF. The Museum is open every Thursday 10am till 4pm, and at other times by prior arrangement.
