Dr Finn Mackay from UWE Bristol looked at some of the inspiring women who have been at the forefront of women's and LGBT rights.
2018 marked the centenary of the Representation of the People Act which allowed some women to vote for the first time. To recognise this anniversary, over the last year, South Gloucestershire Council has been running a Heritage Lottery funded project Inspiring Women Legacies of the First World War. They have collected nominations for local inspiring women whose stories highlight women's achievements in South Gloucestershire including the role women have played in the development of industry and STEM, culture, sport, local politics, public service and social justice.
You can see the inspiring women from the exhibition and all the nominations from the exhibition on the South Gloucestershire Council website.
