Women: The female protesters against giving women the vote

Syndicate Post image

A hundred years to the day since voting rights were first granted to women in Britain, images of the activists behind the momentous occasion will go on display in London's Trafalgar Square.

The Prime Minister will say online abuse is often targeted at women, gay people and members of ethnic minorities, as she urges social media companies to do more to stamp out abuse.

The situation was still unequal between men and women - as men over the age of 21 could vote regardless or not of whether they owned property. Yes, women now have the vote in the West and enjoy those freedoms, as they should.

Recognition of the need for change grew under the pressures of the war - military, social and political. "This centenary should give us an opportunity to reflect on the many struggles that female activists have led and the victories they have won throughout the last 100 years".

Up the stairs, there's an artwork commemorating the suffrage campaign.

Women increasingly took on jobs formerly occupied by men who'd left to fight.

For black women things have been even more hard.

Amnesty is calling upon readers to nominate the incredible women who are working to make a real difference in their local community today.

By 1918, nearly a million women were employed in some form of munitions work.

Ms Harman also said female politicians were more willing to work cross-party to campaign on women's issues.

Even as the Suffragettes themselves launched militant protests before the war, enduring awful punishments, their leaders sought to contrast their campaigns with those of troublemaking proles. If press coverage of the Act encouraged scrutiny of the government's actions to improve women's rights back in 1918, there's a strong chance that many of us would bring the same critical gaze to the present government and its record in fostering equality of the sexes.

On a scale of one to 10 - one being no rights, 10 being full equality -, she adds: "I think we're probably around the halfway mark".

Speaking of her praise for the suffragette movement, the leader of Newport City Council Debbie Wilcox said that women "should never forget how fortunate they are". Many countries around the world such as Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates offer little or no suffrage or allowances for women. It allowed women over the age of 30 who owned property or were married to a man who owned property, the right to vote.

This low percentage was due to the fact that only men who had been resident in the country for 12 months prior to a general election were entitled to vote.

They believed women didn't have the capacity to understand politics, and portrayed the suffragettes as a group of "ugly" women and "spinsters". The event has been commissioned by 14-18 NOW and is produced by "Artichoke", creators of large-scale public art events.

Fear of such attacks prompted museums to request women leave their bags and coats in cloakrooms, to stop activists concealing weapons, but a century on the Suffragettes have themselves become exhibition subjects.

Later this year a statue of Millicent Fawcett, a heroine of the campaign, will be placed in nearby Parliament Square alongside other historic figures such as former prime minister Winston Churchill.
