Women in thousands took part in celebrations held in British cities to mark the centenary of granting suffrage to women. They went on a procession to Parliament through the heart of the city along Picadilly and around Trafal Square. Women wearing scarves in colours also marched through London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast.

Reports said that in 1918, Parliament enacted the Representation of the People Act, which granted property-owning British women over 30 the right to vote.
