International Women's Day: Sheffield's suffrage shop
 

A shop that played a significant role in the suffragette movement is being remembered with a special plaque on International Women's Day.
The suffrage shop on Chapel Walk, Sheffield, was occupied by the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU).
An active location for the suffragette movement from 1908, the shop was opened by Adela Pankhurst, daughter of Emmeline Pankhurst and a WSPU member.
The commemorative plaque was funded through a crowdfunding appeal.
Sheffield was the first place to have a woman's suffrage society run by women for women, said the council.
