Votes for Women Timeline

This month marks one-hundred years since The Representation of the Peoples Act was passed which, for the first time, gave some women the right to vote. To celebrate we have created this interactive timeline which shows some of the key dates and events which contributed to women gaining the right to vote in Britain. Taken from our Oxford AQA History for GCSE: Thematic Studies c790-Present Day Student Book, for more information on this topic please see pages 154-159.
