Ideas Worth Fighting For- DesignMcr16

A friend and I visited the exhibition Ideas Worth Fighting For at the People’s Museum Manchester being held as part of DesignMcr16. It covered political and pivotal events of the last 200 years describing events where like minded folk came together and protested for the good of the people, be it voting systems, workers rights and protection, equality, women’s rights, and peace.

It was uncomfortably amusing how relevant these issues were today. Although, as we hear when speaking of gender equality, times have changed; we have not advanced so far where we could not  take the banners and posters from the walls of the museum and they would look out of place on the streets today.
