🌞🌈 All. Every. No woman left behind 🌈🌞Today in the UK lots of people are celebrating 100 years of women's suffrage - February 6th 1918 marks the first advancement in UK women's suffrage, with the law changing to allow women over 30 who owned property the right to vote (it wasn't until 10 years later that all women over 21 were allowed to vote). I always think that these milestone celebrations should be times when we not only recognise the achievements and voices of the women who are traditionally celebrated, but also the women whose achievements and voices are so often left out of the conversation, and the history books.

The voices that are overlooked are often the ones who are the most marginalised - women of colour, disabled women, trans women, women who fought and continue to fight without the same recognition that their white, able-bodied cis-ters get. So today I'm using this landmark to remind myself and everyone else to support and celebrate ALL women, especially the ones our culture so often chooses not to. "I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own." - Audre Lorde πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž
P.s. there's an amazing article on @theunedit right now celebrating the marginalised voices of UK suffrage, I've put the link in my stories! 🌸
