In 1950, the Museum of London acquired the remarkable collection of the Suffragette Fellowship. Formed in 1926 by former members of the Women’s Social and Political Union and the Women’s Freedom League, the Fellowship aimed to ‘keep alive the Suffragette spirit’ by collecting and preserving both the written memories and the mementoes of Suffragette prisoners. The Fellowship’s donation to the museum came with an ambition to ‘perpetuate the memory’ of the militant Votes for Women campaigners.

This new small display reveals how the museum is exploring fresh ways of ‘keeping alive the Suffragette spirit’ and how the collection is inspiring a younger generation including designers and artists.

This display forms part of the museum’s programme of events and displays marking the centenary of the 1918 Act that gave some women the right to vote for the first time.
