Women’s History Exhibition
together with ‘Roses from the Heart’ Bonnet Exhibition at Central Library
In celebration of International Women’s Day 2018 and honouring 100 years of women’s rights to vote, the Waterford Women’s Centre will launch their annual Women’s History Exhibition together with ‘Roses from the Heart’ Bonnet exhibition in Waterford Central Library on Thursday 8 March at 11:30 am. The Waterford Women’s Centre presents a rich and extensive exhibition highlighting Waterford City and County women’s stories through photographs and written narrative. This exhibition represents many years of collaboration between Andrew Kelly, Kilmacthomas and Waterford Women’s Centre’s management member Ann Fitzgerald.
This year’s exhibition highlights the 1918-2018 Centenary of women’s suffrage. After a long and difficult campaign women got the right to vote. They had to be 30 years of age and own a property. Eventually in 1922 after a strong campaign, all Irish women over 21 were given the right to vote. The exhibition will also highlight Waterford born Dr. Mary Strangman, Waterford’s first woman Councillor, doctor, feminist, suffragette and public health activist to be honoured on Wednesday 7 March with a Civic Trust Blue Plaque sponsored by NCCWN Waterford Women’s Centre through their ‘Pink Plaque Campaign’.
Dr. Christina Henri an artist from Tasmania, Australia will give a short presentation on the bonnet making project ‘Roses from the Heart’.
This exhibition will run in Central Library from Monday 26 February to Monday 26 March 2018.
