Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The Representation of the People Act was passed 100 years ago, giving (some) women the right to vote in the UK for the first time. Take a closer look at some of the less well known suffragettes whose perseverance made it all happen at Votes for Women, an exhibition from the Museum of London. As well as a film showing some of the figures who campaigned tirelessly to achieve votes for women, Emmeline Pankhurst's hunger strike medal and Louise Mary Eates pendent, presented to her on her release from prison, will be on display.
