THE NEW cover of British Vogue magazine celebrates journalist Liv Little and author Reni Eddo-Lodge among seven females who are continuing the battle for equality.

A century ago, female suffrage was achieved in the UK through the relentless campaigning of pioneers such as Emmeline Pankhurst and Emily Davidson, who paid the ultimate price for her commitment to the cause.

Their legacy, and the continuous movement of female empowerment, has today been honoured by British Vogue as it cites 'new suffragettes' à la 2018.

In the race for equality, black women have two hurdles to contend with - gender and ethnicity. Eddo-Lodge, author of 'Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race', and Little, founder of gal-dem, exemplify awe-inspiring activism.

Throughout a series of interviews about equality, each woman was asked to discuss “the changes that would improve the lives of women and what the next hundred years will hold”.

This feature, by Eva Wiseman, appears in the third issue of Vogue under new editor Edward Enninful which hit newsstands today.
