79 Albion Street, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 5AP

An exhibition which tells the story of the Leeds women who contributed to the long 19th century campaign for the vote.

From 1894, all ratepayers, men and women could vote in local elections. Women were elected to School Boards and became Poor Law Guardians.

Some women were granted the Parliamentary franchise in 1918.  Without these Leeds women, it might never have happened.

Meet the exhibition curator Vine Pemberton Joss for a talk on the exhibition
