‘Women in the 21st Century’
The Photomonth Photo-Open celebrates the centenary of the first time some women gained the right to vote in the UK and were allowed to stand for Parliament.
All Photo-Open entries are screened during the show and a selection printed to be hung in the gallery. The public are then invited to vote for the ‘best in show’ and the winning photographer will be given two tickets to the Sony World Photography Awards 2019 to be held in London, and a year’s free subscription to the British Journal of Photography.
Images by students of The Cass BA Photography Course who have been documenting this year’s events and exhibitions celebrating the little known history of the East London Federation of Suffragettes, who fought for all women over 21 to have the right to vote on the same terms as men, which was achieved through the ‘Equal Franchise ‘ Act in 1928.
