02/02/18 – 06/01/19: Votes for Women | Museum of London

votes for women

This display forms part of the national commemorations marking the centenary of the 1918 Act that gave some women the right to vote for the first time.

Dedicated to those who campaigned tirelessly for over 50 years to achieve votes for women, the exhibition features iconic objects from the Museum’s vast Suffragette collection, including Emmeline Pankhurst’s hunger strike medal.

At the heart of the display is a powerful, newly commissioned film that highlights the personal story of lesser known Suffragettes and reflects on the contemporary relevance of the militant campaign that continues to inspire, shock and divide opinion.
