#Vote100 Democracy Café | Wired Cafe | Friday, 14. December 2018

On the 14th December 1918, just a month after the armistice that ended the fighting in World War One, a general election was held in Britain and Ireland. 

Not just any general election - but one where some women cast their vote and stood for election for the first time ever. 

100 years later, the fight for equal representation for women is far from over. Only 32% of MPs are women, and only 32% of local councillors in England are women. 

How far have we come since then?
What still needs to be done?
How can we work together, as women, to achieve the equality that we deserve, both in politics and at home?

With an incredible panel of female leaders, join My Life My Say to learn about the inspiring women who paved the way for universal suffrage one hundred years ago, and discuss why and how the fight for equality continues to this day. 

Taking place at the Wired Cafe in Nottingham City Centre, enjoy a FREE cup of coffee and interesting discussions for one of the last events of the year celebrating 100 years of women's suffrage.  

For under-30s only. Funded by the Women's Centenary Fund.
