Deeds not Words: Celebrating 100 years since women gained the vote
Join the Senior Tutor and College Fellows in the Hub as we raise the Suffrage banner and enjoy morning coffee in celebration of 100 years since some women in Britain were first able to use their vote.
The 1918 United Kingdom general election was called immediately after the Armistice with Germany which ended the First World War, and was held on Saturday 14th December 1918. It was the first general election to include on a single day all eligible voters of the United Kingdom and was the first general election to be held after enactment of the Representation of the People Act 1918. Therefore, it was the first election in which women over the age of 30, and all men over the age of 21, could vote. Previously, all women and many poor men had been excluded from voting.
Refreshments and pastries will be served. This event is free to attend but booking is required.
