Through drama and creativity we help empower young people to use their voice and be heard.

From the House of Commons to the Scottish Independence Referendum the 2015 General Election and the EU Referendum, #Emilymatters was there.

Bringing people together, to celebrate how far we have come and to empower a new generation to use their voice and be heard is central to the #Emilymatters initiative.

Our outreach work includes performances, talks, speeches and To Freedom’s Cause.

This year we have worked with a range organisations and grassroots groups, including Macclesfield’s Barnaby Festival and the UK Civil Service Suffrage Centenary flag launch in Westminster.

It has been fantastic to be part of so many Vote 100 events. There is much to celebrate and it’s absolutely right that we mark this important chapter in the UK suffrage history.

With that in mind, I have become increasingly aware of the gap between people across the UK coming together for Centenary suffrage themed events and the backdrop of our current political narrative of fear and division.

Listening to women and young people, in particular, it has become increasingly clear that their voices are not being heard in Westminster.

Mindful, of what Emily Davison, Mary Leigh and their brave suffrage sisters campaigned for, the time feels right to support the call for a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.
