Part of WOW – Women of the World

View this installation that celebrates a landmark victory in the campaign for gender parity.

On 6 February 1918, the Representation of the People Act was passed in Parliament. It was a crucial victory, and one that gave the first women the right to vote in the UK.

Women over the age of 30 (or their husbands) who owned property worth five pounds or more were entitled to vote.

This installation celebrates a key moment in the campaign for gender parity. It is composed of the images of many of the people who dedicated themselves to women’s suffrage and, through their campaigning, helped secure the vote.
