  5. VIDEO: Celebrating the suffragette

A CAMPAIGN to honour incredible women who are working to make a difference in their local community has been set up by Amnesty International with support from the Worcester News, to mark the centenary of British women winning the right to vote.

The project encourages readers to nominate inspirational, yet ordinary women, who are often-unsung heroes, to be recognised on an interactive map that will launch on International Women’s day on March 8.

The map is a symbol of the suffragettes’ legacy – proudly displaying how far we have come over the past century, but also highlighting how much life-changing work is still being carried out today in every corner of the country.
