The superheroes who fought for women to get the vote

On 2 July 1928 women in the UK were finally given the same voting rights as men.

It was a law called the the Representation of the People (Equal Franchise) Act 1928.

Ten years earlier, on 6 February 1918, a law was passed which made it possible for some women to have their say over who would represent them in Parliament.

But not all women could vote from the date of that law. Women had to wait another 10 years until they had the same voting rights as men.
