Posted by LibeRaCe on July 2, 2008
Have a look at this timeline to see when other countries allowed women to vote. Check out our previous post in March covering womens history. See the UK Parliment Archives page for original documents to celebrate the anniversary of the Equal Franchise Act 1928, which gave women the vote on the same terms as men. Listen to Emmeline Pankhurst’s daughter, Christabel, campaigning for the cause.
