Your Story, Our History

As part of Vote 100, women share their personal stories of how laws passed by the UK Parliament have changed their lives for the better.

In the third instalment of #YourStoryOurHistory:

  • Tobi’s story explores the Representation of the People Act 1918. Tobi shares her first voting experience and explores the impact of women’s franchise on women from all walks of life.
  • Sarian’s story looks at the Female Genital Mutilation Act 2003. Born in Sierra Leone, she talks about how the Act protects her and her children from FGM since moving to the UK.
  • Therese and Courtenay’s story looks at the impact on women of the act that created the National Health Service, and the 1967 Abortion Act.
