UK Parliament Week kits will start being sent to partners who have registered an event or activity in summer 2018.


Your Story, Our History 

As part of Vote 100,  women share their personal stories of how laws passed by Parliament have changed their lives for the better. We have created #YourStoryOurHistory, three short films focusing on laws that have contributed to women’s rights and continued to empower them.

Hold a screening and debate for UK Parliament Week 2018.


Beyond the Ballot

Take this online course and explore the campaign for women’s right to vote and its impact on women’s rights.

How Parliament Works

Vote 100

UK Parliament Week 2018 forms a part of the UK Parliament’s Vote 100 programme, which celebrates 100 years since the first women got the vote. We’ve compiled some resources to help you explore the struggle for equal suffrage during your UK Parliament Week event or activity.

Your local MP can offer excellent insight into the work of Parliament. You can invite your local MP to hold an assembly about their role and how your audience can engage with their work. Find out who your local MP is and how to contact them.

Invite a Peer to your event

Why not invite a Member of the House of Lords to talk about their work as part of your event? Here’s a list of members, their details, and how you can contact them.
