It has been 100 years since some women were allowed to vote in Saskatchewan.

Monday marked the 100th anniversary of when royal assent was given for some women to vote in Saskatchewan that was given on March 14, 1916.

"I hope that all women recognize that this is a privilege that has been fought long and hard for.
