Young girls who are members of the Guides, Brownies or Rainbows will now get the opportunity to earn a unique badge, to celebrate the centenary of women winning the right to vote. The badge was designed by a Brownie leader with the help of Helen Pankhurst, the great-granddaughter of the leader of the British suffragette movement. Girls can earn the badge through holding their own general election, learning about a women’s suffrage campaigner from their local area, designing a suffrage banner about an issue important to them or baking cupcakes and decorating them using the suffrage colours.
