The protests were lead by Helen Pankhurst the great granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst the suffragette leader. She was joined by dozens of 'Olympic suffragettes' including lecturer, Liz Chamberlain, from the University of Winchester.
Some of the campaigners, organised by UK Feminista, lobbied their local MP about the issues surrounding women's rights including the impacts of the cuts made towards women, rights of refugee women, the representation of women in parliament and violence towards women and the rights to childcare.
