The Equality Exhibition in Stockport

An informative and inspiring free exhibition, organised by the UK Equality Council and hosted by Centric Community Projects, is being held in Stockport for the next two weeks.

‘The Equality Exhibition’ focuses on sexism in popular culture, from the #metoo movement to key recent moments and issues behind the headlines.

There is also a great amount of content on race relations in the 21st century and how depictions of race in the media have changed over the past few decades.

This exhibition also celebrates influential women such as political leaders, scientists and amazing women who have changed our world.

Councillor Kate Butler, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration, said: “This is a great opportunity to understand the current issues on sexism and how the mainstream media portrays race, as well as to learn more about the many strong women who stand in the public eye.

“This exhibition also shows how far we’ve come in acceptance and racial equality – there’s still a lot to be achieved, but it’s good to be reminded of the progress that has already been made.”

The Equality Exhibition is open weekdays 12-5pm between 29th January and 9th February at St James’ House, 190-194 Wellington Road North, Stockport, SK4 2QN.
