How The Battle Was Won (BBC History Magazine, February 2018)
“Can the passing of the Representation of the People Act in 1918 – which, for the first time, gave some women the vote – be attributed to the suffrage campaign, the First World War, or other factors?”
On the centenary of the legislation of 1918, four historians answer the big questions on female suffrage in the February 2018 issue of BBC History Magazine, including: ‘Did suffragette violence hasten victory?’ and ‘How critical to the campaign were the Pankhursts?’

“Research shows that diversity in the boardroom brings in dividends, with companies that have more women on their boards delivering a 36% better return on equity. African investors should take note.”
The March 2019 issue of African Business explains the benefits of gender diverse workplaces, beyond box ticking – even though gender diversity often takes a backseat to what many view as ‘more pressing’ business issues.
