VISITORS have just two weeks left to visit the Bodleian Library’s suffrage exhibition.

Sappho to Suffrage: Women who Dared, which started in March, is open at the Weston Library in Broad Street until Sunday, February 24.

The free exhibition celebrates the achievements of women across a range of disciplines, from the arts to the sciences, marking 100 years since the Representation of the People Act, which paved the way for all women in the UK to get the vote.

To date, more than 150,000 people have visited the exhibition.

Covering 2,000 years of history, Sappho to Suffrage showcases unique texts, medieval book bindings, photographs, posters, ancient papyrus, letters, scientific instruments, musical scores and games, telling stories of ‘women who dared’ across the millennia.

From literary luminaries like Mary Shelley and Jane Austen, to groundbreaking scientists such as French royal midwife Louise Bourgeois and political campaigners such as Emily Hobhouse and Mary Wollstonecraft, the exhibition draws on some of the Bodleian’s greatest treasures alongside items that have rarely been displayed before.

The exhibition also features a wall of banners that celebrates modern suffrage champions as well as a digital version of this ‘wall of suffrage.’
