As we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women this International Women's Day we reflect on the work our Founder, Harry Gordon Selfridge, did to provide equal opportunities for women. Selfridges was a huge supporter of the suffragettes, we opened our first store in London just as the movement gained momentum in 1909. Harry focused much of his attention on women from all social classes. Our store was the first to have women’s toilets, permitting them to stay all day instead of having to go home. He even championed women’s suffrage at a time when they fought to win women the right to vote in Britain. He flew their flag above the shop, published ads in their newspapers, and carried items in their colours. Today, Selfridges continues to support causes it believes in today. #IWD2018 #PressForProgress
