6th February 2018 marked 100 years since women over 30 were given the vote in Britain. This presentation was created to celebrate this historic anniversary but can be used at any time to teach children about the suffragettes and the Bill in Parliament that allowed women to vote.
This resource is a 22 slide detailed, editable PowerPoint, perfect for teaching your children about this important topic. The slideshow covers women's rights prior to suffrage, the actions of the suffragettes, the arguments on either side, a detailed look at five particular suffragists, women during the war, the Act in Parliament, women in the 20th century and suffrage around the world. It concludes with some questions for further conversation.
It is suitable for using with KS2 children and could be used for an assembly, a filler or a lesson introduction.
I hope you enjoy teaching about this historic event!
(Please note: This PowerPoint is adapted from the secondary school version to make it appropriate for primary aged children.)
