So this is the week we salute those who, in 1918, first won British women the vote. 100 years down the line, there’s still plenty to play for (#MeToo didn’t come out of thin air) but today let’s get out the klaxon, put on some lippy and raise a toast to some of the trailblazers who got us this far. It’s not a definitive list clearly, just a snapshot of some remarkable femmes over the last 100 years. How many do you recognise – and who would you have put on our pretty collage?
