100 Years of Women in Parliament

On the centenary of the passage of the Representation of the People Act 1918 which gave women the vote for the first time, women joined in the #Vote100 celebrations taking place across the country and in the House of Commons.

UK PM Theresa May led the event. The year will commemorate the women who fought to achieve electoral equality with a long series of events and exhibitions. During the celebrations, many recalled the suffrage movement.
