Thursday Doors Suffragette

The Old Vicarage, Cirencester. The door is covered with black plastic, reminiscent of the plastic-sheeted doors of the refugee camp in Kutupalong, Bangladesh. But last week was the centenary of the Representation of the People Bill when 8 million women gained the right to vote. Grace Hadow, suffragette and the ViceChair of the Women’s Institute, lived in this house until 1917.
