The Suffragette movement has been formed and the members are working tirelessly to secure equal rights and the vote for women. The date is 1912 and today, Sylvia Pankhurst is due to speak at a Rally where she is delighted to see so many supporters there to hear her

During this workshop, the children will:

  • Learn about the origins of the suffragist and Suffragette movement
  • Explore opposition to the movement and what was done to counter this
  • Create a timeline of relevant events that led women to get the vote
  • Learn a song sung at Suffragette gatherings
  • Attend a rally, where they will sing, chant, march and generally join the good fight!
