Society Is Still Dominated
2017
1960s gay and women's rights campaigners observed that British society was dominated at every level by men and that those men naturally had an interest in holding onto power.

50 years later, British society in 2017 is still dominated at every level by men. The call for an end to the rigid gender-role system is as urgent today as it was 50 years ago.

The Remember 1967 series consists of six digital billboards created to mark the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967.

With the passing of the Act, gay and bisexual men in England and Wales were able to have sexual relationships for the first time without being automatically criminalised.

Remember 1967 echoes demands made by activists in the 1960s that still warrant action today.
