The 2018 marks a special year for many.
Some will remember it because of the UK’s hottest summer or because of the Royal Wedding, or maybe some will prefer to think about it as the year that England almost brought the football home.
Personally, we’d love to celebrate and remember 2018 as the year that marks the centenary of women’s voting right in the UK.
One hundred years ago, thanks to the Suffragettes' fights, the first women were given the right to vote.
"We are here, not because we are law-breakers; we are here in our efforts to become law-makers."
Nowadays, some department stores in London joined London’s Mayor campaign #BehingEveryGreatCity to celebrate the centenary and ‘smashed’ their windows as a way to recall when, in 1912, the Suffragettes protested smashing shops’ windows.

We’re here today as part of the Mayor of London’s #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign to celebrate 100 years since some women gained the right to vote in the UK. We’re recreating an act performed more than a century ago: the smashing of our windows by the Suffragettes. #HelloHollyNichols 💪🏽
We want to praise the fashion community for its efforts in creating an inclusive environment that cares for and empowers women.
