This conference will mark the centenary of the Representation of the Peoples Act 1918, which allowed some women the vote for the first time in the UK. Building on the increased participation in politics and public life in the 100 years since this historic win for women’s suffrage, this conference will encompass both panel debates and participatory sessions as we look to the future of women making change.

Join us on Saturday 23 June 2018.
