Did you know that …
Only in 1918, after the WWI, the women over the age of 30, under certain conditions could vote in the United Kingdom.
In 1928 the right to vote was extended to all women over the age of 21 (as it happened for men)
Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928) was the leader of the British Suffragette movement, which helped women win the right to vote.
In the USA the 19th Amendment to the Constitution introduced the Woman Suffrage in 1920. Alva Vanderbilt (1853-1933), a millionaire, donated large sums of money to the women´s suffrage movement.
I bought this interesting reproduction of cup and teapot Votes for Women in Mrs. Vanderbilt´s mansion Marble House in Newport, Rhode Island (nowadays it is a museum opened to the public).
