Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) and Women’s rights The time of the year is nearly approaching to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the WILPF. In April 1915 a congregation of women from a range of backgrounds and cultures gathered together in an International Congress in The Hague as a reaction to the end of the First World War and to protest against war in the future. This was when the WILPF was founded in 1915 and it is still ongoing. Women raised issues such as equality, rights for women, justice and freedom. These are what the WILPF have set their aims on in order to free women to work in peace and to participate in decision making. Many programmes are being undertaken such as ‘The Human Rights Programme’ and ‘The Gender, Peace and Security Programme’ to fulfil their mission. As well as this you can get yourself involved by sponsoring, donating or by being a member. For more information you can click on the link below: http://www.wilpfinternational.org/get-involved/ Women’s rights are about women having the same rights as men. Feminists have fought for many rights which have made women’s lives much easier in today’s society. Votes for women, being part of the election, owning a property, equal pay to men’s, being able to work and be involved in the decision making process were all fought for. This has created independence ensuring women no longer have to rely on their husbands for money and other social aspects. Times have changed in much of the world and huge reforms have been made for women in today’s society, even though there are still many stereotypes that exist. Women are now able to work outside of the home with the rights to a wage, as well as achieving full time education. However, this is unfortunately still not the case for women in some countries; therefore the WILPF and other women’s organisations remain important. We have a range of items in our collection which specify women as peacemakersThis booklet was produced on September 6th October 2006 to attend an exhibition held at Newsroom, the Guardian and Observer Archive. A group of Welsh women known as ‘Women for Life on Earth’ arrived at the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp in Berkshire on September 5th 1981. They marched to Cardiff with the intention to debate about the location of the 96 Cruise missiles there. When they arrived they conveyed a letter to the Base Commander which was one of the things stated ‘We fear for the future of all our children and for the future of living world which is the basis of all life’. This pack consists of eleven bookmarks with an illustration and text in Japanese and English and a coloured ribbon attached. It was published by Grassroots House in Kochi, Japan. The museum highlights article 9 of the Japanese constitution which renounces war ‘Lets grow trees of peace’. In the mid-19th century, young people from Kochi have been visiting to Europe to learn about new thinking which is why the area has always been orientated. From the above statement (image) you can see that women really wanted peace as well as gaining justice and equality. Women have often felt invisible and have been treated like a robot. They have often been excluded from the political, social and economic aspects of society. These badges symbolise peace. The badges consist of two Campaigns for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) which is a well-known symbol indicating peace and in Britain it stands for nuclear disarmament. There are two badges with a symbol of CND which states ‘Pensioners for peace’. One of the badges highlights ‘Give Peace a Chance’ which again has a symbol of CND. The wooden white dove represents peace, appreciating simple things in life as well as signifying qualities of home, security and maternal characters. Aiding to find inner peace by meditation and by deep breathing. The ‘Green Peace’ badge of a white dove carrying an olive branch specifies the rainforest being demolished. The olive branches are being used for palm oil which is destroying the forest. The green badge, an illustration of a dove with a pound sign which states ‘Peace Tax Campaign’. This badge clearly shows that taxes were being paid for the war. It aims legal rights to conscientious objection to taxes and for it to be spent on peacebuilding rather than spending it in the war. Badges have been a long been used to highlight different campaigns. We have many badges on display in the museum that relate to women’s rights and other important issues. For more information pay a visit to the museum to see our collection. Seerat Mahmood. Seerat is a current student at Bradford College studying BA (Hons) Education Studies.

The Peace Museum is very proud to have loaned The V&A one of its fantastic banners for its exhibition 'Disobedient Objects'. The exhibition, which was launched on 26th of July, runs until the 1st of February 2015. "From a Suffragette tea service to protest robots, this exhibition will be the first to examine the powerful role of objects in movements for social change. It will demonstrate how political activism drives a wealth of design ingenuity and collective creativity that defy standard definitions of art and design. Disobedient Objects will focus on the period from the late 1970s to now, a time that has brought new technologies and political challenges. On display will be arts of rebellion from around the world that illuminate the role of making in grassroots movements for social change: finely woven banners; defaced currency; changing designs for barricades and blockades; political video games; an inflatable general assembly to facilitate consensus decision-making; experimental activist-bicycles; and textiles bearing witness to political murders." http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/exhibitions/disobedient-objects/disobedient-objects-about-the-exhibition/ The banner on loan to The V&A is a 'Greenham Common Women's Peace Group' banner made by Thalia Campbell. This banner is very apt for this exhibition as Martin Roth, Director of the V&A explains: "This exhibition celebrates the creative 'disobedience' of designers and makers who question the rules. It shows that even with the most limited of resources, ordinary people can take design into their own hands. This is a brae and unusual exhibitions; these are brave and unusual designers. We are proud to present their work".The exhibition is FREE and takes places in the Porter Gallery of The V&A. The V&A is open daily from 10.00 until 17.45 (22.00 on Fridays). The exhibition will tour after the exhibition at The V&A. Watch this space for details of temporary venues. The exhibition is supported by Cockayne – Grants for the Arts, a donor-advised fund of The London Community Foundation.

HARRY ROBERTS' BADGE Saturday 28 June is Armed Forces Day. The Peace Museum will be open for visitors and has a stall at City park as part of Bradford Council's commemorative event. Find our stall to find out about the three types of poppies, Bradford COs and soldiers in WWI. Visit the Museum to explore our new WWI Choices gallery.Our object of the fortnight this week is the badge of the Bradford Pals, a group within the West Yorkshire Regiment in the First World War. The badge is from the uniform of Harry Roberts, a decorated solider from the war who afterwards refused to discuss his experience at war. The ‘logo’ of the West Yorkshire Regiment was a horse. Many horses from Bradford were sent to France and other areas to be used in the cavalry or to aid in other ways, such as carrying supplies. The Bradford Pals produced a journal, ‘The Tyke’, whilst they were at war, and it contains the story of a horse known as 'Spare Parts' used by the soldiers in the regiment. This badge is on display in the new WWI Choices gallery with more of Harry's personal effects, documenting his time in the Pals, his bravery and awards. ‘Spare Parts, never was a name so well deserved’. The story of Spare Parts echoes the story of Joey, the fictional horse that is the main star of Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse. This month, the Museum has been running poppy workshops prior to some performances of War Horse at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford. The workshops have focused around the Purple Poppy which remembers animals who have died or been injured in conflict, along with the traditional Red Poppy of remembrance and the White Poppy which calls to end all wars. Spare parts could be described as a horse that shouldn’t be loved, hence his name. In ‘The Tyke’ he is lovingly described as a bit of an ugly horse, with a lazy docile persona, rarely opening his one eye. Tales of troop experiences regularly featured in the Tyke, one tells of how an inexperienced rider was put off for life after a ride with Spare Parts, who in the end, felt so sorry for the horse, he dismounted and walked the rest of the way, thinking his weight was to blame for his poor health. The story of Spare Parts ends sadly. He was eventually reclaimed by his old fighting regiment in the Cavalry, meaning he would have to go back into battle. He received the news like a ‘Derby Winner’, proudly waving his tail and opening his one glorious eye. There was not a dry eye in the Bradford Pals Battalion; all knew his fate. The story ends with ‘Hush: ‘Spare Parts’ is asleep’. He may have been an odd looking horse, if he could even pass as a horse, but he was loved by many. This shows how the big part these horses played in the lives of the soldiers at war; Spare Parts gave them entertainment and companionship. The tale of Spare Parts was very similar to other horses that were sent off to war. Just like the soldiers who bravely gave their lives for their country in the War, this why today the Purple Poppy exists to remember the sacrifice of these many animals. It wasn’t just horses that were used in the War to help the armed forces, but also dogs and carrier pigeons, with many of these being killed or harmed. Even today animals serve alongside the armed forces. Highly trained sniffer dogs are used to find bombs and landmines, such as in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. These are crucial; they often save the lives of the soldiers in their regiment by finding the bomb before it detonates. Do animals have a choice as to whether they want to serve or not? Is it just as important to remember the service animals as well as the people? By Shannen Lang. Shannen is the Education and Collections Intern at the Peace Museum and a student at the University of Leeds. Shannen has lead the Museum's Stories in Stone project which has uncovered the untold stories of COs buried at Undercliffe cemetery, as part of the Choices project. Visit http://choicesthenandnow.co.uk/untold-stories/stories-in-stone/ for more details about the project.

The temporary exhibition area has been refurbished. This area now consists of three mini-displays. The popular Sierra Leone: Building Peace after War display remains. Selected artwork by peace activist and artist Margaret Glover that relates to the theme of anti-nuclear also stays on display. The latest addition are personal effects belonging to the late Professor Joseph Rotblat. Professor Joseph Rotblat was a nuclear scientist who became an anti-nuclear activist. His anti-nuclear work and efforts resulted in him being jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1995 with the Pugwash Conferences (an annual anti-nuclear conference Rotblat set up). Objects on display include his Nobel Peace Prize ephemera, scientific instruments and graduation gowns. In keeping this the anti-nuclear theme, prints by Gerald Holtom are displayed. These show early depictions of the Direct Action Committee (later known as the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament) symbol. This was adopted as the universal symbol of peace. Also displayed is a roof tile from a Japanese house destroyed by the nuclear bomb. This is a fragment of roof tile from a house that stood in the Japanese City of Nagasaki. The city was destroyed by a nuclear bomb nicknamed ‘Fat Man’ on the 9th August 1945. The bomb was a result of the work of the Manhattan Project Team that Joseph Rotblat boycotted, once he believed that evidence suggested such weapons were no longer needed to stop Hitler and the Nazis. Fragments of buildings survived in Nagasaki near the centre of the blast. Fragments of people did not. This tile was donated to The Peace Museum by Councillor North from Leeds ( himself a life-long opponent of nuclear weapons) and is a stark reminder of the damage that can be done by nuclear weapons. The Museum can be visited on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 10am - 4pm to see these displays and the other galleries. Visits outside of these times for groups can be made with prior arrangement. Please contact the Museum.
PEACE CONFERENCE, UNIVERSITY OF BRADFORD This year celebrates the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Peace Studies department at the University of Bradford. Last week, the University hosted its annual international peace conference and discussed the future directions and challenges for Peace Studies. This was alongside a Peace Jam event aimed at motivating young people to become active citizens and advocates for peace, justice and human rights. The Peace Museum had a marketing stall at the conference and welcomed Museum visitors from the conference as far afield as America, Australia, Japan and the Netherlands. The Peace Museum has its origins within University of Bradford's Peace Studies department. An International Network of Museums for Peace conference was held at the university in 1992, where it was proposed that a Peace Museum should be established in Bradford. It was the first museum of its kind in Britain. The object of the fortnight are two sketches of Nigel Young and Gerald Drewett by Margaret Glover. Nigel Young was a founding member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) in 1958 and throughout the 1960s and early 1970s he became involved in anti-war activism. He has earned several degrees at universities in Britain and America and held numerous academic positions in sociology and politics. In 1973 he co-founded Britain’s first university Peace Studies department at the University of Bradford. Gerald Drewett helped create the Peace Museum. He established the Give Peace a Chance Trust in 1986 as a charity to promote education for peace history and activism. The Trust was part of the pivotal conference which at Bradford University in 1992 where the Peace Museum was proposed. Enough support and funds meant the Museum could be opened in 1994. It celebrates twenty years this year!Margaret Glover is a contemporary artist and peace activist. She attended the 1992 conference in which the first formal discussion took place on the subject of a UK-based Peace Museum. Her drawings, such as these, provides us with much inspiration, with Nigel Young and Gerald Drewett using their passions for peace to help educate others on peace history and research. An exhibition showcasing some of her artwork is on display at the Peace Museum until the end of May. By James McDonald. I am a student at the University of Bradford currently in my second year studying politics. I am especially interested in peace activism and history, having been delighted to volunteer for the Peace Museum and a previous volunteer for the Peace Pledge Union in London.
LIBERIAN BRASS CROSS The Museum has had plenty of changes recently. Behind the scenes, the Museum welcomed Shannen Lang (education and collections intern). On the gallery floor, it has all hands on deck last week to redisplay the popular Margaret Glover exhibition and to install a display called ‘Sierra Leone: Building peace after war’ (both showing until the end of May). The Sierra Leone display is a collaboration between the Peace Museum UK, the Peace Museum Sierra Leone and the University of Leeds. It explores how the civil war in Sierra Leone affected the lives of children and looks at reconciliation and peace education after the war. Images for the exhibition were kindly provided by organisations and individuals, such as the photograph below taken by Teun Voeten. This photograph shows schoolchildren in front of a poster promoting peace. Teun took this photograph while on an assignment in Sierra Leone during the war. The Peace Museum UK has exhibited objects from the collections reflecting other African nations that have been affected by civil war and conflict.One object is a brass cross made from spent bullet cases. This cross was crafted by George Togba. George is an ex-rebel from Liberia. Liberia’s civil war, between 1989 and 1996, resulted in 200,000 Liberians being killed and one million were displaced. George is now a Christian peace activist who now makes peace symbols out of spent bullet and shell casings. Other objects include our Rwandan peace basket, a tie depicting the Biafran flag and a badges supporting Rhodesia’s independence.
