On Friday Manchester unveiled its second female statue and long awaited ‘Our Emmeline’.
Women from across the region, including women from Cheshire and Lancashire Federations, walked together to celebrate 100 years to the day when some women placed their very first vote in the ballot box on 14th December 1918 .
Of course women in the WI have been able to vote on WI issues in their institutes since 1915. And Alia el Asmar our Resolutions Advisor says ‘Don’t forget to return the results of your vote! You can do this by posting in your slips to WI House or by emailing the results to email@example.com. Results should be in by the end of January 2019. Please do not use the email address Alia recently sent (firstname.lastname@example.org) as it is no longer working.’
