Women and Power  

Throughout 2018, the National Trust will be celebrating the centenary of the Representation of People Act which brought the vote to some women for the first time. To mark this historic moment, we will be celebrating the lives and legacies of the women who made our places special. At Mount Stewart our focus will be on the women of the Londonderry family whilst exploring perceptions of power
