A year on from the now infamous Women’s Marches across the world the renewed vigour in the feminist movement continues to bubble. 2018 has seen a celebration and interrogation of the centenary of the first wave of votes for some women. This issue of IPPR Progressive Review looks back at everything the feminist movement has achieved as well as its failures and where it might go next. We hope that this issue inspires you to keep marching with us.
