Countess Constance Markievicz: Britain will formally recognise the first female MP elected to Westminster when the Vótáil 100 committee presents a portrait of Countess Constance Markievicz to the speaker of the House of Commons today.
Markievicz became the first female MP (and subsequently TD) when she was elected by voters in the Dublin St Patrick’s constituency in the historic December 1918 British general election.
She also became one of the first female cabinet ministers in the world and was minister for labour in the governments set up by the Dáil between 1919 and 1922.
The committee, organised to mark the 100th anniversary of women in 1918 gaining the right to vote, travels to London on Wednesday to make the presentation.
Chairwoman of the committee, Labour Seanad group leader Ivana Bacik, said it would be a “historic occasion” when the portrait of the abstentionst MP is presented to John Bercow.
“It is the first time that Ms Markievicz will have been formally recognised by the Houses of Parliament in Westminster as the first woman elected as a Member of Parliament in Britain,” she said. #Markievicz
