Women Hold Up Half the Sky uses domestic and international posters to illustrate the accomplishments of women and their continuing struggle for equality. Beginning with International Women's Day, the exhibition celebrates the common bonds of sisterhood. Topics include women's control over their bodies, violence against women, discrimination in the workplace, women as casualties of war and as fighters for peace. It concludes with posters about women teaching, building, organizing, and uniting to create a more just world. These powerful graphics commemorate individual and organizational efforts for peace and social justice.
