2018 will be another year of ‘deeds, not words’, as the UK joins together to mark 100 years since the Representation of the People Act 1918.
Suffrage leader Emmeline Pankhurst (pictured), who led the movement to win the vote for women in Great Britain wrote in her memoirs:
“Deeds, not words, was to be our permanent motto,”
She was recounting the ways in which the suffragettes relentlessly campaigned for women to be granted the right to vote, knowing that words fell on deaf ears, and actions spoke louder.”
It wasn’t until 1918 that the Representation of the People Act granted a portion of women the vote and ‘Select women over 30’ were able to participate in elections.
