AQA 7042 Britain 2S - position of women by 1997 (girl power)

Lesson exploring the position of women in Britain by 1997. The starter uses contemporary images to assess the changing representation of women in the media. Students then review first, second and third wave feminism using the Oxford AQA textbook and the web to assess shifts over time; moving on to using the lyrics of ‘Wannabee’ by the Spice Girls to view the new messages to women. The next activity involves assessing progress and limitations for women by 1997 using the hand out; linking in prior learning from previous units, building to answering a question on the key changes that occurred for women by 1997. The plenary asks students to vote on how far the position of women had improved by 1997, justifying their responses.
