Centenary of Women's Suffrage

Tuesday 6th February marks the 100th Anniversary of the Representation of the People Act of 1918 that gave some women the right to vote for the first time.

It’s such an important moment in our country’s history, and right that we celebrate the incredible courage the brave women who fought for women’s suffrage showed.

The Labour Party has a proud record of advancing women’s rights and has launched a year-long campaign to celebrate these achievements and continue working towards full equality for women.
