'Making Her Mark: 110 Years of Activism in Hackney’
Lenthall Road Workshop

The 1918 Representation of the People Act, which gave (some) women the right to vote on the UK for the first time, was just the beginning in the fight for democratic rights for all. This exhibition, organised in collaboration with the East End Women’s Museum, tells the stories of those carrying on the cause in Hackney over the last century.  East London women have helped to shape and transform the community through peaceful protest, direct action and grassroots political campaigns, and this display is a tribute to their work. See a 1900s Humble Petition for women’s right to vote in parliamentary elections and learn about one undercover journalist who disguised herself as a flower-seller to investigate the working conditions of poor women and children.
