Mass march marks 100 years of women’s vote

Women in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh, and London donned the colors of the suffragette movement – green, white and violet – as part of a mass procession.

One hundred female artists worked with local communities to create banners for the marches in the four cities.

The protest banners bear messages about equality.

Background:

The Representation of the People Act, 1918 granted property-owning British women over age 30 the right to vote.
