2018 saw the centenary of the first votes for women in the UK. Launching on International Women’s Day, during Women’s History Month 2018, the #LSEWomen project told the stories of some of our inspiring women, from past to present.

And to mark our campus’s historical links with the suffrage movement, in November 2018 we renamed three of our buildings after three leading campaigners for women’s suffrage: Emmeline Pankhurst, Millicent Garrett Fawcett, and Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence. Watch Votes for Women: a history on film.

Researching women’s history?

As well as a history of strong female students and staff, LSE has extensive archives and special collections on women’s history, including the suffrage campaign for votes for women.
