Spirited investigates some of the underreported women who became activists in their teens or twenties and their “incredible acts of courage, creativity and cunning in the face of brutal repression, and repeated betrayal by a government they had little power to influence,” exhibition spokesperson Catherine Riley says.

Spirited runs from 19 October – 2 November at The Portico Library, Mosley Street, Manchester. Backer Spirit of 2012 has also commissioned a digital archive, so the stories of the women the exhibition highlights aren’t lost again.
