International Women’s Day

posted in: School Newsletters | 0

Last Tuesday was International Women’s Day and in our assembly, we learnt about Emmeline Pankhurst and the Suffragette movement that first campaigned for votes for women at the end of the 1800s.  We learnt that although lives for many women have changed hugely since then, there are still parts of the world where this is not the case and there are still gender stereotypes to overcome.  Following the assembly, children did follow up activities in their classrooms including drawings of or letters to a special woman in their life; fact files on Emmeline Pankhurst.
