This event has finished Took place on: Friday, 2nd Feb 2018

100 years ago, in February 1918, after campaigning for over 50 years, British women were finally granted the vote.

To mark the centenary of this important moment in history, Diane Atkinson, author and curator of a major exhibition on the suffragettes at the Museum of London, will reflect on the daring, often violent, endeavours women undertook to break into an exclusively male political system.
