Local suffrage pioneers sought

This year marks the centenary of the 1918 Representation of the People Act, giving women over 30 the right to vote.

The Women's Local Government Society is seeking to identify 100 suffrage pioneers who were active in the campaign for votes, and who went on to use the extended rights to citizenship in a positive way locally.

East Herts Council would like to nominate local suffrage pioneers so if you know of a woman who could fit this category please let us know by emailing

You can find out more  about the project on The deadline for submissions is January 30.
