This year marks the 100th anniversary of a woman’s right to vote in the United Kingdom. To celebrate this momentous event, Channel 4 chose three 100-year-old women—Millie, Beattie and Margaret—to introduce its shows for a week. All of them were born in 1918, the year that some British women over 30 were first allowed to vote.

Besides just announcing programs, the three women are sharing their experiences from a lifetime of being a woman. Extended cuts of their interviews are available on Channel 4’s social media platforms. Additionally, the broadcaster released a short film, 100 Years and Counting, which celebrates the progress of women by naming things they have historically been forbidden to do.
