Celebrating 100 years of votes for women

This online exhibition gives particular focus to the Scottish Suffragette story, using unique items drawn from our  Collections along with Wikipedia biographies that have been created across the year at our Vote100 editathons. You can explore an interactive timeline of suffragette biographies and learn about the Processions 2018 centenary event, at which the University of Edinburgh banner led the Edinburgh march.
