MSP for Cunninghame South, Ruth Maguire, is supporting thousands of women and girls across the UK who will walk together as part of a mass participatory artwork to celebrate the centenary of women’s suffrage on Sunday 10 June.
To mark this historic moment, they will wear either green, white or violet scarves – the colours of the suffrage movement, appearing as a flowing river of colour as they walk through the city streets.
PROCESSIONS takes place in the four UK political capitals (Edinburgh, Belfast, Cardiff and London) in the afternoon on Sunday 10 June. To take part in this free event, sign-up at processions.co.uk
You can also download a toolkit from the website and make your own banner to bring along on the day.
Commenting, Ruth said:
“I am delighted to support the women and girls from my constituency who have already signed up to take part in PROCESSIONS to mark this historic anniversary when the first women got the vote.
“I hope that many more will join them on Sunday 10 June to celebrate how much has been achieved for women, as well as to recognise how far there is still to go.
“It will be an amazing atmosphere and the type of event that everyone will look back on with pride in the future and say “I was there”.
