Time to recognise 100 suffrage pioneers

The centenary of property-owning women, over 30 years of age and all men receiving the vote will be celebrated in 2018. Shouldn't we now be acknowledging those pioneers, ordinary people who did extraordinary things, to further the struggle to gain the vote? It was these people who helped highlight the opportunity for ALL women to participate in democracy by uncovering the achievements of those who both fought for the Representation of the People Act 1918 and then went on to participate in the opportunities it created.

The Women's Local Government Society (WLGS) working with Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC), the Local Government Association (LGA), the National Association of Civic Officers (NACO), Civic Voice and Vote100 have come together to seek 100 pioneers who were suffragists across the country and who deserve to be recognised.

This could be your grandmother, aunt, or other family member. If so let us have some information about them and perhaps they will become one of those 100 pioneers we wish to recognise.
