Suffrage pioneers

Women who successfully campaigned for the right to vote and changed our public and political landscape forever have been commemorated in a new list of more than 100 pioneers today was unveiled today. One of women celebrated is Phyllis Lovell, who was part of the FANY St Omer convoy.

Many FANYs were awarded gallantry medals but were not able to vote, and all voting FANYs had to be over 30 years old. The FANYs serving with the British were exempted from the residential requirement for the vote, but only those; not with the Belgians or French.
