100 years ago today, some women got the right to vote for the first time. Today we're celebrating #Votes100 with the story of Catharine Dowman.

Catharine was actively involved in the suffragist movement. and she also helped save and restore the Cutty Sark. Catharine and her husband bought the ship in the 1920s and it was used to train cadets as well as being the first historic ship to be open to visitors since Francis Drake’s Golden Hind was exhibited off Deptford in 1580.
