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. Find out more about Millicent Fawcett and the movement for women's suffrage by reading our centenary factsheets here. Watch the story of how the statue of Millicent Garrett Fawcett was made below. 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. Will you join our call for a fairer, more equal society? Honour Millicent Fawcett today by becoming a Fawcett member at this crucial time for gender equality.

Ideas to get you started There are endless possibilities to help get you to the £1,000 mark. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started: Host a suffrage film night. Invite your friends over and host a film marathon featuring all of your favourite suffrage films and TV shows. 'Suffragette' is an obvious choice here, but Downtown Abbey has a good suffrage plot line, and let's not forget Mary Poppins. That's right - Mary Poppins was looking after the children of a suffragette! Hold a suffrage talk. We have a range of materials over on our centenary resource page that you can use to host a talk in your local community. Why not couple it with a bake sale as well? We'd be happy to help you plan! Run the International Women's Day 10k. In this virtual race, you can choose to run, walk, cycle or swim the 10km, and can even split the distance up into stages. As long as you send in proof you've completed the challenge, your fabulous International Women's Day 10k medal will be posted to you directly. Sign up today!
