2018 marks the 100th year of some women gaining the right to vote in the UK, with the passing of the 1918 Representation of the People Act. To mark this auspicious occasion, publisher St James’s House has partnered with the History of Parliament Trust to produce an official commemorative album for the #Vote100 anniversary. The book tells the story of the 84-year struggle for women to get the vote, how the vote was won and what that has meant for women since.
We are proud to announce that our very own Centre of Excellence CEO and founder Sara Lou-Ann Jones, has been interviewed for the publication following the huge rise of female entrepreneurs and the role that online learning is playing in shaping our future. Due for release in June this year, the fully-illustrated coffee table book will be available through leading book retailers, including amazon.co.uk.
Along with the official History of Parliament Trust Vote100 commemorative album, a series of exhibitions, talks and tours, and events are due to take place between February-December 2018 around the UK, with the aim of engaging the public with the UK Parliament and the struggle for the vote. You can find our more on the parliament website and follow #Vote100 on Twitter to keep up to date.
