New exhibition

Women in Queen Square: Celebrating the centenary of Votes for Women in the UK. This exhibition, features photographs, objects, and documents from Queen Square Archives, will be launched on 5th February 2018, and run until end of April 2018.

Thank you to everyone who nominated women for inclusion in our exhibition. The joint winners are:

  • Anita Harding
  • Patricia Limousin
  • Jenny Vaughan

We received a wide range of nominations for women past and present in Queen Square, from both IoN and NHNN, and across staff groups (many of whom already feature in the exhibition).

The exhibition coincides with International Women’s Day on 8th March, and also commemorates the 100th anniversary of the first women voting in the UK, in the general election of December 1918. Please see handout for further information.

See the UCL Vote 100 website for programme of further exhibitions, talks etc marking the centenary.
