Centenary YearIn 2018 as we mark 100 years of the first votes for women we are at a tipping point. Women, girls and their male allies are standing together to reject misogyny, violence and sexism and to demand change. We remember the suffrage campaigners of the past and their struggle over many decades for women’s rights including the right to vote. They faced many barriers and set-backs. Yet they persisted. Their triumph inspires us to know that we too can succeed. Anything is possible. But there are also those who would turn the clock back. Those who would undo the progress of the past. The truth is equality won’t happen on its own. So we have to fight on and find the next generation who will step forward to drive change. The moment becomes the movement. Join us. Be a part of Millicent Fawcett's movement Thanks to a campaign led by Caroline Criado Perez, Millicent Fawcett is now the first woman commemorated with a statue in Parliament Square – a landmark moment for the wider suffrage movement, and for women everywhere.

Video credit: Mayor of London It's been 100 years since some women secured the vote - but as our Sex and Power 2018 report shows, we clearly still have a long way to go. Equality won't happen if we don't fight for it. We've got to make it happen. We will continue Millicent's legacy by ensuring 2018 is a year of victories for girls and women everywhere.
