In the centenary year of some British women finally gaining the vote, 1st Bridgnorth Guides held an Equaliteas evening to mark the historic event. The Guides hosted a fantastic evening as part of their challenge badge Centenary of Votes for Women while raising money for Cameron’s Fund at Asthma UK. In a show of solidarity, the Guides were joined by local female councillors and members of the town’s WI – who came dressed for the occasion!
It was the culmination of a range of activities connected with learning about democracy at different levels of government, the suffragettes and inspirational women from the past. Cllr Julia Buckley gave an inspiring talk to the Guides, explaining that if you want something to change, you have to be the one to do it.
