This edition of Illustrated Women is History is to celebrate the centenary of (some) women gaining the ability to vote after lengthy campaigns by women who fought tirelessly for women’s suffrage.

1918 – 2018

“Women do not want their political power to enable them to boast that they are on equal terms with the men. They want to use it for the same purpose as men – to get better conditions. Every woman in England is longing for her political freedom to make the lot of the worker pleasanter and to bring about reforms which are wanted. We do not want it as a mere plaything.”

– Selina Cooper
