200 years ago, on February 6, 1918 the Representation Of People Act was passed, and women finally were granted the vote...
under certain circumstances....
having to be over 30 and own property.
Full voting rights took a few more years
1928 to be exact.

Emmeline Pankhurst being arrested outside Buckingham Palace in 1914

over 1300 women were arrested during the demonstrations for the vote.

 A milestone to be recognized.

What a charming and historical tea cozy. We take the right to vote for granted but these women forged our future!
Thanks for sharing,
