Summary "Founded in 1974, See Red Women's Workshop grew out of a shared desire to combat sexist images of women and to create positive and challenging alternatives. Women from different backgrounds came together to make posters and calendars that tackled issues of sexuality, identity and oppression. With humour and bold graphics, they expressed the personal experiences of women as well as their role in wider struggles for change. Written by See Red members, detailing the group's history, the book features all of their original screenprints, alongside posters commissioned for radical groups and campaigns. Confronting negative stereotypes, questioning the role of women in society, and promoting women's self-determination, the power and energy of these images reflect an important and dynamic era of women's liberation -- and have continued relevance for today."-- Publisher's description.
