To celebrate this month’s International Women’s Day on the 8th March young women explored objects in Brighton Museum’s collections and exhibitions, and then discussed their impact on women, society and themselves:
“It was empowering and fun and I learnt some facts about history before feminism.”
Using these discussions and their own life experiences the young women created animations with a message they wanted to give:
“It gave me a chance to learn something new, try something new and has inspired me to do more. We discussed issues that effect women negatively and hope to help society stop that.”
But “it was really fun! – I’ve never done stop animation before. I learnt about feminism and what it means and I liked looking at the exhibitions”
And we “learnt a lot about animation!”
