St Hugh’s marks 100 years of women’s suffrage

On 6th February 2018 the College hosted a well-attended discussion event to mark the centenary of the Representation of the People Act,  which gave (some) women the vote. The event was jointly organised by each of Oxford’s five former women’s colleges (St Hugh’s, St Anne’s, Somerville, St Hilda’s, Lady Margaret Hall).

Our five speakers, each representing one of the colleges , were Baroness Shirley Williams, Dame Helen Ghosh DCB, Professor Jo Delahunty QC, Sheila Forbes CBE and Faith Boardman.

The theme of the evening was ‘One Hundred Years of Women’s Suffrage: Where to Next?’
