Out with my Dad in Green Park today, we had the fortune to stumble upon the London procession, marking 100 years since British women were given the vote (albeit home-owning ones over 30 years old). The energy and good vibes were amazing, and made me feel so moved. #processions2018 #100years #greenpark #london #womensrightsarehumanrights #suffragette #womeninhistory #deedsnotwords #useyourvote #womeninhistoryshouldntbeamystery #procession #equality #march #equalrightsforall #womensrights #celebration #suffragist #centenary #gratitude #thankyou #londonsights #londonprocession #energy #women #neverthelessshepersisted #atmosphere
