In 2018 Koestler Trust will be displaying artwork by women in prison in key sites across the UK. Around 100 artworks by over 50 women will be on display.

The project will play a part in the Vote 100 celebrations which will be taking place throughout 2018, celebrating the centenary of the 1918 Representation of the People Act which granted women the right to vote.

Many suffragettes were famously imprisoned 100 years ago and this trail will shine a light on the challenges faced by women in prison in 2018, put their challenges on the agenda of policy makers and catalyse improvement in the treatment and rehabilitation of women prisoners.
