Last year, the City Corporation agreed to mark 100 years of female suffrage with the award of the Freedom by inviting members of the Court of Common Council and colleagues in their City of London Wards to nominate candidates.

More than 100 women will receive the Freedom of the City of London to commemorate the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918.

We were delighted to nominate three amazing women who work in the Ward of Cheap: Sabine Chalmers, BT; Petronella West, Investment Quorum, and Speranta Knowles, ICBC Standard Bank.
