Suffragette Anniversary

For the 100th anniversary of partial votes for women.

Hurrah for the Suffragettes

Who, one hundred years ago,

Fought for the right of women to vote.

Struck inequality, a deadly blow.


Let us not forgot their struggle

Against the gender discrimination

Of every woman, of every race

Of every female in this nation


Lets remind employers & unions,

That equal job means equal pay.

Lets change the law & enforce it,

To make sure it stays that way.


Sexual harassment in the workplace,

Is something that has to end.

A women’s right to feel safe at work,

Is a right we need to defend.


The success of our country’s economy,

Relies on women to work.

Professional success & opportunity,

Is not a just masculine perk.


In honour of the Suffragettes.

Let us, men and women agree

Sexual discrimination thwarts potential

Its Equality that sets us free
