As Shadow Women and Equalities Minister, Sharon Hodgson said:
"As we approach the 100 year anniversary of woman successfully fighting for the right to vote (1918), it is incredibly important that we all honour what was fought for and make sure we vote"
"Women have always been under-represented in our democracy, and it is only by each of us getting involved that we can bring about the change we want to see"
