In 2018, one hundred artists made banners with community groups from across the UK as part of PROCESSIONS, 14-18 NOW to celebrate a century since the first women won the right to vote in the UK.  

Women Making History is the first opportunity to see each of the 100 banners up close in all their glorious detail and features new essays from inspiring women including Dame Helen Pankhurst, June Sarpong and Saoirse Monica Jackson.
