Celebrate female artists who have explored protest, social commentary and identity, in this exhibition marking a century since the first women won the right to vote.

Bringing together modern and contemporary works from the Arts Council Collection and Birmingham’s collections, the exhibition showcases pieces by celebrated artists including Susan Hiller, Lubaina Himid, and Mary Kelly, as well as sometimes controversial artists such as Sam Taylor-Johnson, Sonia Boyce, and Margaret Harrison. The show will not shy away from difficult subjects, nor underplay the genius behind these works.

Inspired by the bold work of feminist artists and activists, Women Power Protest will raise awareness, provoke debate and ask just how much has changed for women?
