Today marks 100 years since the first women were allowed to vote in the UK.
The courageous and brave fight of the Suffrages was justified when on February 6th 1918, the Representation of People Act was passed which allowed women over 30 with certain property qualifications to vote.
To mark this occasion, we're celebrating brave, inspirational women, whether we know them personally or not. Comment below a female who has been an inspiring or influential in your life.

Far far too many!! As a child my three heroines were Margaret Thatcher (for becoming our first female PM), Enid Blyton (I wanted to write just like her!) and Wonder Woman (simply for being wonderful!!)

When I was a teenager Princess Diana burst into the limelight... I know since then her frailties and imperfections have come to the fore but for me she still epitomises that care and concern for people should come before politics.
