Thank you 👍

No thank you to the suffragettes, Thank you to the Suffragists. We would have got the vote sooner if an organisation that would now be defined as a terrorist group had not been involved.

Thanks for being brave enough to break the law knowing you would be tortured and mistreated, because you believed in the cause.

Thank you to all the women who fought for the vote for women; whatever group they may have belonged to.

M0nica if you haven't watched it do watch the Lucy Worsley programme and hear how many Bills failed over the years. The sufragettes didn't stop women getting the vote the men in power did.

Thank you so much for turning the tide.
Thank you to those who came after to continue the battle.
I’m not sure we’ve reached the finishing line yet but we are getting there.

There’s much that is easy to take for granted and yet it’s really such recent history. Thanks to all who made stand then and now
