75th Anniversary Of Women Winning The Right To Vote

EDM number 200 in 1993-94, proposed by Maria Fyfe on 07/12/1993.

That this House notes the 75th Anniversary on 14th December of women first being allowed to vote; recalls the hardships endured by the suffragettes and their courage and determination in the pursuit of this basic human right; hopes to see the equal representation of women by the time the centenary is reached; congratulates Clackmannan District Women and Girls Resource Project and all others who are commemorating this event; and feels it is time that this House commissioned a painting to commemorate the suffragettes, to be hung in a prominent place within the House of Commons.

This motion has been signed by a total of 72 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
