SheFest, Sheffield’s Fringe Festival for International Women's Day, is a programme of events celebrating women. Fighting Talk will explore themes of protest, persistence and progress in response to the centenary of the women's vote.

SheFest, Sheffield’s Fringe Festival for International Women's Day, is a programme of events celebrating women and girls. The festival, running from 5th-11th March, features a wide range of inclusive and celebratory events which aim to engage women from all over the city! The SheFest exhibition (2nd – 15th March 2018) is one of these many events and will run for the duration of the festival.

2018 marks 100 years since women won the right to vote. This exhibition responds to this centenary with a 21st century perspective. By focusing on contemporary protest the exhibition will draw attention to inequalities that we need to overcome worldwide. We welcome proposals from artists that reference this united backlash against patriarchal society whether this be in small acts of everyday resilience or collectively in public-facing resistance movements.

Although we are celebrating the momentous achievement of our past sisters it is important to recognise that the fight is not over. Women are still facing inequality worldwide, in 2018 the war is not yet won. We ask you, this year, what are we fighting for?
