Voice and Vote: Women and Parliament
Voice and Vote: Women’s place in Parliament
Wednesday 27th June – Saturday 6th October
09:00 – 17.30
Westminster Hall, London
100 years since women gained the partial vote, an interactive exhibition will be hosted in Westminster Hall telling the story of women in Parliament – the campaigning, the protests and the achievements.
Dr Jacqui Turner, University of Reading History lecturer and Vote 100 adviser, and the University of Reading Special Collections are recreating Nancy Astor’s mailbag for the exhibition. Nancy Astor was the first female Member of Parliament to take her seat, and her letters of correspondence are stored in the University of Reading’s Special Collections.
The exhibition will also feature other rare and previously unseen historic objects, pictures and archives.
