And in 2018, British Women were celebrating 100 years of the right to vote. Helen Pankhurst and CARE International UK joined together create a campaign highlighting that whilst Women have the vote, they are #StillMarching in the UK and around the world. They are still marching for women’s right to take part in the decisions that affect their lives free from harassment and abuse.
