UK women's vote centenary
The Museum of London has today opened a new suffragette display to mark 90 years since men and women had equal voting rights.
The Equal Franchise Act was passed in July 1928.
To celebrate this, the museum opened a new display titled 'Keeping alive the Suffragette spirit'.
It looks at the ways the Suffragette legacy lives on today and explores how the story of the Votes for Women campaign can continue to be told for generations to come.Copyright: Museum of london
Beverley Cook, social and working history curator at the Museum of London, said: “As we’re celebrating 90 years of the Equal Franchise Act, it’s never been more evident that the impact of the militant Suffragette campaign is still very much alive.
"Keeping alive the Suffragette spirit, celebrates this, but also reflects on how we can develop new, innovative ways of telling the story of the Suffragette campaign in the future."
