Caerphilly & RCT Socialist Party: 100 years of votes for women

Wednesday 21st February 2018, 7pm

King's Arms, Caerphilly

2018 has been widely celebrated in the media as the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote. In actual fact the 1918 Act gave the vote to some women (over 30, who met certain property requirements), along with working class men, who had been disenfranchised up to this point. Women did not win the vote on the same terms as men until 1928, which is when universal suffrage began in Britain. But what lessons can we learn from these events (and the campaigns which led up to them) today? Come join the discussion!
