#Vote100 Games 2018

2018 marks the centenary of the 1918 Representation of the People Act which gave the vote to certain women for the first time #Vote100 and the 1928 Equal Franchise Act which gave the vote to all women over the age of 21 #Vote90.

During Tower Hamlets' International Womens and Girls' Week 2018 this March, Romance FC are celebrating #Vote100 and International Woman’s Day with an afternoon of 5-aside football games and beginner sessions. Bringing together grassroots women’s football teams from in and around East London, we want to celebrate the right for women to vote and the activism work of the East London Federation of Suffragettes.

Romance FC Women Voting

The East London Federation of Suffragettes grounded their campaign in the everyday reality of working women’s lives and saw the vote as just one aspect of the struggle for equality. They fought for a living wage, decent housing, equal pay, food price controls, adequate pensions and numerous other causes. The same fight continues to this day and their activism is an inspiration to the players of Romance FC.
