A couple of weeks ago I hit up our local cinema to watch the movie ‘Suffragette’. I’m such a sucker for anything to do with history, so was quite looking forward to it. The movie follows the story of the suffragettes’ fight for equality and their campaign. I can remember studying their plight at school, but couldn’t remember all of the details, so it was nice to have a watch and appreciate what they did for the future of Great Britain.
There are so many things that we take for granted, for example the right to vote, and it’s easy to forget that not too long ago the equality that we embrace so much now wasn’t always the case.
I am a firm believer in equality. I believe that we are all completely equal no matter where we are from, what car we drive and who you love. I find it absolutely bonkers that people would think any different. I think it’s insane that when my grandparents were growing up women had such a small say in how things were ran. When my Mother was growing up, there was a lot of racism around, which again is just ludicrous! I’m so proud of the campaigners who are slowly changing the world and making us more and more united. Hopefully by the time I have children, the world will be an even more friendly place.
