Walk for Women 2013
One hundred years ago thousands of women walked from all across Britain, starting from as far away as Lands End and Newcastle, converging in Hyde Park, London on the 26th July. There were 50,000 women assembled in Hyde Park on that day in 1913. They were demonstrating to the government how many women wanted the right to vote. Women all over the country will be walking and celebrating t that we're free and honouring the fact that is was because of the suffrage movement.
A walk will be taking place on Saturday 20th July 2013 at 10am, starting in Wath Upon Dearne. There is no sponsorship involved, just good fun and all are welcome to take part, not just women.
