Women’s struggle for equality exhibit

Milton Public Library will host labor advocate Stephen Lewis and his collection of women’s equality posters throughout the month of February. Adult Services Librarian Jean Hlady said Lewis has exhibited similar poster collections in the past at the library. “We had a lot of people looking at the work,” she said of the previous exhibit. This time around, the posters will focus on women’s issues in the workplace. “I have no artistic skill,” admitted Lewis in a phone interview. “These are posters I’ve collected over the past 20 years. They are from many countries around the world.” The topic is one Lewis not only has an interest in but has also been a part of, having been involved in dealing with women’s issues through his union in his 35-year career. The project is supported in part by grants from Laborers Local 22, Carpenters District Council, and Asbestos Workers Local 6.
