This display forms part of the national commemorations marking the centenary of the 1918 Act that gave some women the right to vote for the first time.
Dedicated to those who campaigned tirelessly for over 50 years to achieve votes for women, the exhibition features iconic objects from the Museum’s vast Suffragette collection, including Emmeline Pankhurst’s hunger strike medal.
At the heart of the display is a powerful, newly commissioned film that highlights the personal story of lesser known Suffragettes and reflects on the contemporary relevance of the militant campaign that continues to inspire, shock and divide opinion.

Women on the March are winding back the clock to the turn of the twentieth century. Join them on a march through central London and help campaign for the right for women to vote.
Along the way you’ll meet some of the characters who played a part in this struggle and some of the characters who tried to stop them. They’ll let you know the lengths they are willing to go to to achieve their aims and they’ll take you to the places that are so important in the fight.
This is a theatrical tour devised by three Blue Badge guides with a background in the theatre and an obvious interest in women’s history. It’s not an ordinary tour but don’t worry… no bras will be burnt and there’ll be no awkward audience participation!

• The difference between skills, attributes and traits, which will help you to differentiate yourself from the rest of the field and increase your chance of getting hired.
• A fool proof way to identify the skills that you have, so that you’re not underselling yourself and you get the rewards in full you deserve.
• The fundamental errors in skills analysis that midlife job seekers and career changers make that cause them to miss out on their dream professional roles, or even to have to ‘trade down’ to stay employed’.
• Proven tools and techniques that you as a professional can use to categorise your skills, which can help you move towards more fulfilling and meaningful roles.
• The skills analysis tips that will speed up your CV creation and application form process which will save you time and get you into a better role faster

About Careers Reinventors 40+
Career Reinventors 40+ helps midlife professionals to reinvigorate or reinvent their careers to find more meaningful satisfying and rewarding work.
Midlife professionals face external pressures from globalisation, organisation restructuring and increasing automation and artificial intelligence, this can leave professionals feeling overworked, unappreciated and insecure. In addition, just as psychologist Carl Jung identified; by the age of forty, many people question what they want from their lives and what they want from their careers. Everyone’s heard of the so-called ‘midlife crisis’. Jung attributed it to a ‘search for meaning’ and also a need to live a more ‘authentic’ life. This can lead to people wanting to develop and use talents that they may have previously neglected, and perhaps pursue a new career path.”
Midlife professionals need to discover personal strategies, and develop individual career reinvention plans – and that’s what Career Reinventors 40+ supports them to do.”
