"I hope we see the centenary of property owning women over the age of 30 winning the vote as an opportunity to acknowledge that the movement included queer women as well as working class women and women of colour", she added.

The venue played host to 25 women's suffrage meetings, and was called a "Temple of Liberty" by campaignersPAEmmeline Pankhurst, suffragette leader and founder of the Women's Social and Political Union, addresses a crowd in Trafalgar Square in 1909PAA suffragette is arrested by police officers in 1914.

Following one hundred years when The Representation of the People Act granted females over thirty the right to vote, equality demand is yet to cease, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn emphasized.

While many women were to resent this point of view, by and large, the woman's place was seen to be in the home, cooking for the husband and rearing any children they might have together. "Convictions of Suffragettes were politically motivated and bore no relation to the acts committed", Mr. Corbyn said in a press release.

'Labour in government will both pardon the Suffragettes and give an official apology for the miscarriages of justice and wider persecution they suffered'.

Liz Law, of the Royal Mail, said: "Our Votes for Women stamps convey the scale of activities that the different organisations undertook in their tireless campaigning for the vote".

In a speech in the northern English city of Manchester, the birthplace and home of the British suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst, May will announce government measures meant to make sure social media firms are stamping out offensive content.

May, Britain's second woman prime minister after Margaret Thatcher, hailed the achievements of women in politics since the Representation of the People Act first gave some women the right to vote in 1918, after years of struggle that saw Pankhurst and others jailed and force-fed while on hunger strike.

Today is a historic day as it celebrates the day women got the vote thanks to the Suffragette movement.

Yet the tides of the Suffrage movement are still surrounded in misinformation and confusion, with several leading members and activists in the movement identifying as lesbian, bi, or simply as women who were attracted to other women.

The fight for women's suffrage was led by women made famous by their daring stunts, law-breaking and non-violent forms of protest, including Emmeline Pankhurst, Emily Davison and Flora Drummond.
