One hun­dred years ago this week marked a mile­stone in fe­male his­tory for Bri­tish women – we won the right to vote. The suf­frage move­ment that had seen women lose their lives in pur­suit of eman­ci­pa­tion and en­fran­chise­ment was vic­to­ri­ous (al­though ini­tially only for women over 30, who met spe­cific prop­erty, work or ed­u­ca­tional cri­te­ria). And it’s been full-speed ahead since then. We’ve come so far in the past 10 decades, and con­tinue to evolve at lightening rate as we hur­tle to­wards ex­cit­ing, ex­tra­or­di­nary times with #Metoo and Time’s Up. It’s not easy, it’s not al­ways fair, but we keep on fight­ing and we do seem to be win­ning. We can’t wait to meet the war­riors of the next 100 years.
