An Exhibition of photographs commemorating the Centenary of Women gaining the right to vote for the first time is taking place at the Barry library. They are holding a two week long event which started yesterday to commemorate 100 years of the first women having the vote. The exhibition is a record of the 'Suffragettes'. In 1905 leading Suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst spoke in Barry at a public meeting. Prior to 1918 no women regardless of their status was allowed to vote. Women such as Emmeline Pankhurst, Millicent Fawcett, and Emily Davison fought and sacrificed to ensure that women had the right to vote over who governs them.
