We will not be moved

AN exhibition of 130 political posters from the 1980s and ’90s was launched on Friday evening at Nowra’s Squid Studio as part of local International Women’s Day celebrations.

Collected by North Nowra woman and Shoalhaven International Women’s Day committee member, Marg McHugh, the posters reflect her life and interests during her 18 years in Adelaide from 1979 to 1997.

Themes of justice and equality for all connect the posters which cover topics of sex, gender, class, ethnicity and sexuality.

The designer of many of the posters, former Gerringong resident Chia Moan, appeared at the launch and spoke about changes to printing techniques over the years.

The exhibition, A Personal Journey, runs until the end of the month.
