2018 was the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act which allowed some women over the age of 30 to vote. It marked a significant moment when women became increasingly visible within public and political life.

 

To mark the year National Museums NI celebrated the women in their collections through Hear Her Voice, an exciting year-long programme of exhibitions and events that looked deeper into the women in their collections so to better represent their contribution to society and celebrate their often overlooked achievements.

 

As part of the season we were asked to curate a series of films in response to the museum's collections. Our programme consisted of Irish premiers, never screened before archive films, new documentary and invited speakers - scroll through the gallery below to find out more.
