From suffrage to citizenship

The aim of the project is to identify and celebrate the lives of 100 previously hidden women and supportive men who were active in the campaign for votes, leading to the Representation of the People Act 1918, and who used the extended rights to citizenship in a positive way locally. Ordinary people doing extraordinary things

Working with partner organisations, we want to include women and men from all walks of life and from all corners of the country. Those women and men who worked tirelessly in suffrage campaigns and also made use of enhanced opportunities, such as serving as elected councillors, magistrates, joining local committees or leading new local organisations
