MoL - Votes for Women

Through 6 January 2019
Museum of London
2018 is the centenary of the 1918 Representation of the People Act, the law that gave the first women the right to vote in the UK. Commemorate the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage with displays and events at the Museum of London.
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 reflects on the contemporary relevance of the militant campaign that continues to inspire, shock and divide opinion.
