2018 marks the centenary of British women getting the vote for the first time. 100 years after this historic occasion, women’s history is still under-represented. Help Historic England address this imbalance: together we can make history with HerStories.

To commemorate the centenary of the first women winning the vote, Historic England will research, highlight and list places that played a part in the struggle for suffrage and subsequent gender equality.
