Image February 2018 is the centenary of the first British women to get the vote, and the Bevois Mount History group will be at Portswood Library on Tuesday, February 6 from 10.30am talking about women’s suffrage in Southampton.

The 1918 Representation of the People Act “gave some women the vote for the first time and paved the way for the introduction of universal suffrage 10 years later, which saw women win equal voting rights to men”.

Bevois Mount History, which is a group of residents interested in the past, present and future of Bevois Mount – an area between the River Itchen and The Avenue – says it’s also looking into organising a further date at an alternative time for those unable to attend.
