This exhibition and series of events celebrates the centenary of the 1918 parliamentary act that gave some women the right to vote for the first time.

Votes for Women explores the history of the suffragettes, the divisive group with unconventional and often shocking methods who campaigned tirelessly for over 50 years to give women the vote.

Featuring a number of iconic pieces from the Museum of London’s vast Suffragette campaign collection, believed to be the largest in the world, visitors will be able to see key pieces from Suffragette history and hear the untold stories of the inspiring women who fought for the cause.

The display forms part of a year-long Votes for Women programme including a packed events calendar of workshops, discussions and tours.
