Harry Enfield worked well as immidiate reaction was that it was anti women but after discussion a number of pupils were able to identify the opposite.

The purpose of this document collection is to make available to teachers and students a wide selection of documents relating to the suffragette movement. The sources include material from the Home Office, Metropolitan Police and prison files, the Women’s Social and Political Union office (W.S.P.U.) which were used as exhibits in the trial of Emmeline Pankhurst and other leaders, including their correspondence and the Suffragette newspaper. We hope that such a collection will offer teachers the flexibility to develop their own approaches and questions and differentiate student tasks. All documents are provided with transcripts. Please note that in many cases we have displayed the whole document and highlighted the extract we have chosen to transcribe. These records support numerous lines of enquiry on a range of significant themes.
The link to the document collection can be found in the lesson PDF which also contains our Teachers Notes and an introduction from Dr Diane Atkinson.
