A 2018 exhibition of items held in UCL Special Collections, covering the actions and reactions to the case for universal suffrage.
The movement calling for women's right to vote in the United Kingdom was drawn out over several decades and generated intense differences of opinion, not only between those for and against electoral equality, but also within pro- and anti-suffrage campaigns. This exhibition drew on items held in UCL Special Collections - satirical commentaries, campaign literature, personal notes and petitions - to examine the actions and reactions surrounding the case for universal suffrage, from the 1860s up to the first legislative step towards equality for women: the Representation of the People Act, 1918.
The exhibition ran from February - December 2018.
