To The Editor,

I was pleased to read in your paper a blue plaque to commemorate Grantham suffragette Mary Anne Rawle was unveiled to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the suffragettes' achievement of winning the vote for women.

Mary Anne was a founder member of the Grantham branch of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies and is right we are now marking her amazing achievements in the fight for equal rights.

Steps to achieve equality are being made but there is still much work and progress to be made.

Those steps owe a lot to women like Mary Anne, who set the ball rolling all those years ago.

Yours faithfully,

Margot Parker, MEP for Grantham
