On 6th February 2018 - a hundred years since women first won the vote - 407 people went on 24 hour "hunger strike" to protest our broken democracy and call for Proportional Representation.
The line-up included MPs, MEPs, public figures and hundreds of campaigners for fair votes.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part in this action - and everyone who supported the fasters online or in person at our Sheffield and Westminster vigils.
#Hungry4Democracy was hugely successful in attracting public attention to the injustice of First Past the Post and the need for PR. Thanks to the work of hundreds of you, we found space in a crowded media agenda celebrating the centenary to point out that the struggle for democracy is far from over!
Molly Scott Cato and Stephen Kinnock appeared on BBC programmes to talk about the campaign, Caroline Lucas raised PR in Parliament, and we counted 38 articles and comment pieces in national, regional and local press across the country. Some press highlights included Phil McDuff's coverage of Hungry for Democracy in the Guardian, Amelia Womack's feminist case for PR in the New Statesman, David Williamson's interviews with Hywel Williams and Stephen Kinnock in Wales Online, and some powerful comment pieces including Natalie Bennett (Yorkshire Post), Ben Bradshaw (Huffington Post), Sal Brinton (Lib Dem Voice) and Stephen Kinnock (Labour List).
Thank you to all of you who wrote to your local media! If your piece was published, can you see it below? If not let us know and we'll add it to this page and share it online. If your piece wasn't published this time don't worry - your campaigning will be on their radar now so they'll be more likely to next time.
We had a great impact but we're still #Hungry4Democracy and will be until we get it! If you are too, consider taking another step - go and meet your MP and tell them why you're passionate for PR, and if you did the fast make sure to tell them that too!
Coverage of Hungry for Democracy
Perhaps best of all, the Mail Online wrote a scathing piece in which the campaign was called "the silliest stunt in recent memory". As it was the Daily Mail that first used the term "suffragette" as a way of ridiculing the women campaigners who won the vote, we could think of no higher praise!
We recognise that we live in a world in which people still go hungry and discrimination impacts too many of us. To honour these realities, we've invited participants and supporters to donate the money they would have spent on food to help a women's rights charity, a food bank charity and the campaign for real democracy. There's still time to donate - all donations will be divided equally between Make Votes Matter, the Trussell Trust, and the Fawcett Society.
