This exhibition tells the stories of 100 years of women challenging the politics of their time. Badges, posters, zines, sashes and postcards illustrate how women have changed the world, from suffragettes to the radical zine-makers of today.

It can be viewed on the Mezzanine floor during Edinburgh Central Library's normal opening hours.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Firebrand Women: Generating Change are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
