Calling women and girls to help create a banner to celebrate the centenary of the right to vote

The 6th of February 2018 marked the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, which was a landmark moment in our nation’s history. On this day, 100 years ago some British women gained their right to vote, a critical point for women’s equality and British democracy.

In celebration of this momentous anniversary, we are calling on women and girls from across the region to join us on April 14th to help create a banner which will then join the 100-strong banner procession on June 10th. The procession will be a celebration of the fight for suffrage, expressing what it means to be a woman today, and will take place across Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London.
