Happy Suffrage Centenary!

100 years ago, for the first time in the UK, some women obtained the right to vote!

A lot is still to be achieved but it is only fair to remember everything that has already been achieved and to be grateful to those extraordinary women who have come before us.

A great film to watch - and definitely worth a re-watch - is Suffragette:

If you're more into the written word, this is what I am going to be reading this month: My Own Story by Emmeline Pankhurst and an interesting article about Eleanor Marx - because all great women deserve to be remembered.

I will be sharing more titles in celebration of 100 years of vote on Twitter, using the hashtag #FeministBookshelf. Please feel free to add your recommendations in the comments below or on Twitter.
