Suffragettes, Voters and Worcester Woman

An exhibition to mark the centenary of some women’s enfranchisement in Britain on 6 February 1918. It will introduce you to Worcestershire women who campaigned for the vote like Clarence Houseman, Elsie Howie, Isabel Margesson and Florence Peek and begin to explore how women have used their vote in the years that followed.
