Brent Arts Council
100 Years of Womens Franchise and Voting Rights in Britain. This project will celebrate both historical and modern day female figures with strong local connections to Brent. The Borough of Brent was home to the well-documented suffragette, Mary Blake, who first sought the right to vote. Today, Hampstead and Kilburn is represented by female MP Tulip Suddiq and the constituency of Brent Central is currently represented by MP Dawn Butler, who continues to advocate women’s rights.
