2018 marks 100 years since Parliament passed a law which allowed the first women, and all men, to vote for the first time. To celebrate this milestone three centenarian women took over Channel 4's continuity announcements. Millie, Beattie and Margaret were all born in 1918, the year when the Representation of the People Act gave some women aged over 30 and men older than 21 the right to vote. As well as providing the links to programmes throughout the week, Beattie, Margaret and Millie shared their experiences of what it's been like growing up as a woman over the past 100 years.
Jane English, 4creative Business Director and co-chair of 4Women - Channel 4's gender equality network, noted 'The centenary of women's right to vote is a milestone moment for gender equality. We wanted to celebrate how much has changed for women over 100 years, whilst acknowledging battles that are yet to be won.'

Throughout the day, the channel's regular idents were replaced with a special #PurpleLightUp ident. The ident returned each year up to 2021.
