Nevertheless, she persisted

This display focuses on the Women’s Suffrage movement and celebrates some of the key women in Warrington who have ‘broken the mould’.

In Victorian society the general view was that a woman’s place was in the home. Most women did not enter further education or a profession, and women were unable to vote or to serve on any local government body. Many people thought that politics was beyond their understanding. However, from the late 18th century, some people advocated rights for women as citizens equal to that of men. Women played a part alongside men in general agitation for political reform in the early 19th century.
