National Democracy Week, 2nd to 8th July, is week-long celebration of democracy in society. It’s an opportunity to celebrate progress and to champion future democratic participation. Regardless of who we are or where we are from, we can work together to ensure that everyone has an equal chance to participate in our democracy and to have their say.
Monday 2nd July 2018 is the 90th anniversary of the 1928 Equal Franchise Act, which gave women the same voting rights as men. The Week is being led by the National Democracy Week Council – over 40 organisations across the UK who are passionate about democratic engagement – which includes some of the Democracy Commission’s partners and supporters.
