Celebrating 100 years of women's suffrage

Trailblazing women who successfully fought for the right to vote have been honoured in a life-size paper tribute handcrafted to mark 100 years of women’s suffrage.

Students on Birmingham City University’s Design for Performance course used 1,600 metres of brown paper and 500 metres of corrugated cardboard to craft an exhibition which features key figures from the Suffragette movement in the run up to the 1918 Representation of the People’s Act - which first handed women the vote.
