Today I am grateful to the suffragettes. Only to think – it is under 100 years that women have been enjoying the right to vote in the UK! I don’t know why it is not talked about louder or wider. It should. They were heroes and they made huge sacrifices for us – so that we do not have to worry about out right to vote – leaving us space and time to think about whether we should vote and for whom.
