Lady Jo Benson Receives ‘Votes For Women’ Trophy

It is now my pleasure to announce the winner of ‘The Salisbury Five – Votes For Women’, which was a very important part of the recent Salisbury History Festival.

It has been refreshing to highlight the lives of Florence White, Lady Hulse, The Spitfire Girls, Lady Jo Benson and Rosemary Squires – all outstanding women in their own right and a credit to the City of Salisbury. The winner is Lady Jo Benson who, as our photograph shows, was recently awarded a trophy.

 

My thanks go to the researchers who helped write the essays, to everyone who took the time to vote and to all the establishments who helped with voting slips and advertising the event.
