Students hail impact of suffrage movement

Sixth formers praise work of campaigners

Students on the Isle of Man have been hearing about the impact of the women's suffrage movement.

It's been 100 years since women were given the vote in the UK, but some women were able to go to the polls on the Isle of Man from 1881.

The suffragette flag is on the Island this week, visiting secondary schools, the college and the Tynwald Library to mark the anniversary.

Jack Smollen and Beth Colgan from Ballakermeen High School's Sixth Form believe society would be very different today without the work of the suffragettes.
