February 2018 is the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act which allowed some women over the age of 30 to vote. It marked a significant moment when women became increasingly visible within public and political life.
To mark the year National Museums NI are celebrating the women in our collections through Hear Her Voice, an exciting year-long programme of exhibitions and events across the Ulster Museum, Ulster Folk & Transport Museum and Ulster American Folk Park.
We will be looking deeper into the women in our collections and their stories so we can better represent their contribution to society and all their amazing achievements.
You’ll find details of the programme below and we’ll be updating it throughout the year.
