About

Although lots of big cities played a part in getting votes for women, like London and Manchester, people in Plymouth also tried very hard to raise awareness of votes for women. In a law passed here, at the Plymouth City Council building, they proposed women should be allowed to vote in 1873. That's 45 years before it actually happened! In 1874, the mayor of Plymouth, Henry Richard Glynn said "The exclusion of women otherwise legally qualified for voting for members of parliament is injurious to those excluded from the right and is opposed to the principles of just representation and to the law now in force."
