EDM #1333
Tabled 23 April 2009
2008-09 Session
There has been an amendment to this EDM.
That this House commemorates the 100th anniversary on 27 April 2009 of the day that Margery Humes, Theresa Garnet, Sylvia Russell and Bertha Quinn, suffragettes from the Women's Social and Political Union, chained themselves to statues in St. Stephen's Hall to protest for the right of women to vote; pays tribute to those and all other heroic women who fought for the rights of women during a time when society, and Parliament, thought them undeserving of equal rights; admires their courage and dedication; encourages women to make full use of the hard-earned right to vote and to stand for election; calls on all parties to encourage women's political participation; and looks forward to a day when gender balance in Parliament becomes a reality.
