Suffragette City | The Telegraph
Picture of the Day
Suffragette in the Snow: The National Trust & National Archives create a Suffragette City; an experience marking 100 years since the partial granting of the vote to women.
The immersive experience uses National Archive records to recreate the life of a real Suffragette activist, Lillian Ball, a dressmaker and mother from Tooting. The Exhibition is at The Pavilion, 1 Piccadilly Circus in Central London (8th - 25th March, 2018).
This National Trust and The National Archives project forms part of their wider programmes that commemorate 100 years of the 1918 Representation of the People Act, which granted the vote to property-owning women over the age of 30 or graduates voting in a university constituency.
It also marks 90 years since the 1928 Amendment of the Representation of the People Act that created equal suffrage between men and women.
