Thousands of women turned cities in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales into rivers of green, white and violet Sunday to mark 100 years since the first women won the right to vote in the U.K.Wearing scarves in the colors of the suffragette movement that fought for female political, women marched through London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast in events that were part artworks, part parades.It would be another decade before women in the U.K. would have the same voting rights as men.It asked 100 artists to work with women's groups on banners inspired by the bold designs of the suffragettes, who led a decades-long campaign of protest and civil disobedience to get women the vote.A statue of suffragist leader Millicent Fawcett was recently erected in Parliament Square, the first on the site to commemorate a woman.The suffragettes and their legacy remain more controversial.
