‘Print, Protest and the Polls’ commemorates the centenary of the first female vote in Ireland through the use of print media – through promotion and protest – by the Irish suffragists and their opponents. The exhibition shines a light on a neglected period in Irish women’s history, while simultaneously exploring the powerful relationship between the contemporary political protest and the developing print media. The exhibition includes material from local suffragette Lillian Metge.
