On 6 February 1918, Parliament passed the Representation of the People Act 1918 allowing women over the age of 30, who met specific requirements, to be able to vote in elections.
This was a beginning of a change which permitted approximately 8.4 million women in Britain and Ireland . Later in November 1918, the Parliament (Qualification of Women) Act 1918 was passed, which permitted women over 21 years old to stand and be elected .
Undoubtedly a positive change for British Democracy.
One hundred years later women now take an active role in party politics as equals and leaders. As we rapidly approach Brexit, this nation needs patriotic British women to step forward and speak up for native British rights.
I encourage and welcome women to take part in British Nationalism. Never before have we needed women to take a lead in the effort and work for our country’s future. We want a democratic country in which the British people are represented and heard, not marginalised or ignored as women were 100 years ago. No Briton today should permit their people to be replaced or repressed.
There are far too few women participating in politics where they should be voicing their needs and helping to shape the future. Women are still a minority in active politics and your contribution and support would be welcomed by other patriotic women and men who strive for a better, fairer society for native Britons.
Join the British Democrats and help further British Democracy for the British people.
