Political activists enjoyed a morning of cinema, conversation and cake to mark the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote.

Watford Labour Women’s Forum organised a screening of the film Suffragette, starring Carey Mulligan and Anne Marie Duff, at the Henderson Hub in High Street, Abbots Langley, to celebrate the occasion.

February 6, 1918 was the date the Representation of the People Act granted 8.5 million property owning women over 30 the right to vote.

But despite the celebration, women have still not achieved equality.

Sarah Flynn, women’s officer for the Watford Labour Party, said: “While today is a day for celebration, the fight for equality still goes on with the gender pay gap, the lack of women in positions of power, and the scale of violence against women and girls.

“Discrimination and disadvantage is multi-layered, and we know that women of colour, women with disabilities, LGBT women, and older and younger women all experience additional barriers because of their identity.

“Our work is not yet done.”
