100 years on: Historians campaign for Suffragettes to be honoured with Blue Plaque

- January 19, 2018

The centenary of the Peoples Act, which was given straight after the war allowing men to vote from the age of 21 and women to vote from the age of 30, is this year.

It wasn’t until 1928 that women were given the same voting right as men.

Two women are on a mission to commemorate the centenary of the first votes for women, by appealing for a blue plaque to be displayed where the first Brighton suffragettes worked and campaigned.
