A century after the Suffragettes changed the course of history for good, we are still asking how much progress has actually been made. T
here is still much to celebrate 100 years on: the courage of those who fought for equal rights, the revolutionary changes they won.
That struggle is now the subject of a new play ‘Votes for Women’, which opens next month at the New Vic Theatre in Stoke.
In the second in our series marking 100 years of women and the vote, we caught up with cast and crew, along with the granddaughter of a leading Suffragette, to look back on what was achieved a century ago and to ask what battles lie ahead.
