An exhibition of posters and objects celebrating the people who took part in the VOICES project.The Voices of Individuals: Collectively Exploring Self-determination (VOICES) project aimed to change the law in relation to the right to legal capacity for people with disabilities. The project was based at the Centre for Disability Law and Policy, NUI Galway under Dr. Eilionóir Flynn. The right to legal capacity in its most basic form is the right to make decisions which have legal consequences and to have those decisions respected by the law. This project took an innovative approach to legal capacity law reform by publishing the stories of those with lived experience of disability and pairing them with researchers, practitioners, front line workers in disability services and activists to develop grounded ideas for legal reform. The VOICES project placed participants from eleven countries and five different continents in pairs. Each of the pairs worked together to co-author a chapter of an edited collection entitled, ‘Global Perspectives on Legal Capacity Reform: Our Voices, Our Stories,’ which was published by Routledge in 2018. The exhibition will feature a poster and object celebrating each of the chapters in the edited collection,  their unique content and diverse experiences.

The formal campaign to extend the parliamentary franchise to women took over fifty years to achieve its aim. At last, on 6 February, 1918, the Representation of the People Act extended a limited franchise to women over the age of thirty and on 21 November 1918, women won the right to contest parliament, this time at twenty-one, the same age as men. On 14 December 1918, women participated in a general election for the first time as voting citizens.

The centenary exhibition, Suffrage In The West, marks the effort of some local suffragists who worked to achieve equal voting rights for women. Venue: The Hardiman Building Foyer Video Wall, 14 – 21 December, 2018.

Curators: Marie Boran and Mary Clancy.
