This week as part of the celebrations to mark the 100 year anniversary since Parliament gave women the vote, Therese attended the unveiling of a statue of Suffolk's very own Millicent Fawcett in Parliament Square.
However, it is not just in Westminster that celebrations are taking place. The UK Parliament's Vote 100 programme is helping groups from all over the country to hold EqualiTeas. Running between 18th June-2nd July EqualiTeas are a chance for any group anywhere in the country to come together to share, debate and celebrate women's right to vote, over a cup of tea and a slice of cake.
Therese said: "I am writing to all the WI groups in Suffolk Coastal to urge them to take part. I can think of no-one better than the Women's Institute, with its unique role in expanding opportunities for women and who also recently celebrated its centenary, to help mark this historic event."
"All you have to do is register at https://equaliteas.org.uk/ and they will send you a host pack with all the information you need to run an event, large or small. If you do decide to take part I would be delighted to hear about your plans."
