Women Can: 100 Years Since Women Gained the Right to Vote
On 20th February, female students from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama donned their suffragette rosettes in order to celebrate 100 years since women gained the right to vote. There was a presentation of music, spoken word, dance, poetry and film in the College's beautiful foyer.
This was a wonderful event which raised over £250 for the Malala Fund.
From the daughters of the nation
Bursts a cry of indignation
Breathes a sigh of consecration
In a sacred cause.
They who share their country’s burden
Win no rights, receive no guerdon,
Only bear the heavy burden
Of unrighteous laws.
Women young and older
Shoulder put to shoulder
In the might of sacred right
Bolder still and bolder.
Let no ancient custom bind you
Let one bond of suffering bind you
Leave unrighteous laws behind you,
Soon you shall be free!
