What’s in a name? For UK Parliament Week 2018, we asked you to help name our sister suffragette

As part of Vote 100, which celebrated the centenary of the first women gaining the right to vote, we asked you to use #NameOurSister on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and help us decide on a name.

Say hello to Hope!

Thank you to everyone who helped #NameOurSister. Hope will be welcoming people to the UK Parliament and visiting communities around the UK in 2019 to help tell the story of women’s suffrage.
