International Women's Day

100 years of International Women's Day!

In 1918, some women over 30 got the vote.

In 1928, women got the vote on an equal basis with men in the UK.

As late as 1991, the marital rape exemption in the UK was finally officially abolished.

There's still a lot of work to do here and internationally.
