Vote 100 timeline
As part of the celebrations Information Services have created a bespoke Histropedia timeline depicting Vote 100 significant figures with direct connections to either the city of Edinburgh or the University of Edinburgh itself.
This interactive timeline can be viewed online or within the Main Library foyer via a large touchscreen panel.
Women of Social and Political Union
Data-driven timeline of members of the Women of Social and Political Union (WSPU) the leading militant organisation campaigning for Women's suffrage in the United Kingdom.
Eagle House suffragettes
Eagle House is a Grade II listed building in Batheaston, Somerset, near Bath. Before the First World War, the house had extensive grounds. When Emily Blathwayt and her husband, Colonel Linley Blathwayt, owned the house, it was used, from 1909 to 1912, as a refuge for suffragettes who had been released from prison after hunger strikes. It became known as the Suffragette's Retreat. Emily Blathwayt was a suffragette and member of the Women's Social and Political Union.
The Scottish suffragettes
The last data-driven timeline depicts key figures related to women's suffrage in Scotland, including Maude Edwards, Frances Gordon and Arabella Scott.
