In 1918 most women over 30 gained the right to vote in parliamentary elections. But the story of women’s activism in Hackney doesn’t begin or end with the suffragettes.
Over the past 100 years, local women have brought about change in their community and in wider society through political campaigns, industrial action, peaceful protest, direct action, and the arts.
Discover the inspiring stories of women who made a difference in the borough and beyond, across issues ranging from education, workers’ rights, and healthcare to domestic violence, the peace movement, and police relations.
