It is 150 years since The Women’s Suffrage Committee, formed by Barbara Bodichon, collected 1,500 signatures on a petition for women’s suffrage in 1866 and it was presented to parliament by John Stuart Mill.
Find out with an introduction from the Parliament website where there is an online exhibition with a list of names.
The LSE Library has a special exhibition Endless Endeavours which is commemorating this. It also has an online Flickr Album with some images form the exhibition. These include fascinating letters from Helen Taylor describing the process of organising the petition and hoping that 100 signatures would be collected!
