Suffragettes Bundle
  • This bundle has been designed to meet the National Curriculum requirements at Key Stage 3 History for women’s suffrage as part of the theme, ’challenges for Britain, Europe and the wider world, 1901 to the present day.’ It can however be used as a springboard for teaching GCSE, particularly if you are teaching this topic, (such as AQA Power and the People or OCR Explaining the Modern World).

  • Each year I cannot wait to teach this subject. It also never fails to ignite the excitement and interest of the students studying this part of history. From the controversy of universal suffrage, to how women were treated in society in the 19th century, the questionable suicide of Emily Davison to the militant actions of the Suffragettes including the Cat and Mouse Act and women’s involvement in World War 1. It is such a fascinating part of our history.

  • Moreover this bundle addresses key historical skills. How did World War 1 show change and continuity for women? What were the causes and consequences of the industrial revolution on universal suffrage? What were the similarities and differences in the actions of the Suffragists and Suffragettes? What was significant about the imprisonment of the Suffragettes or the death of Emily Davison? These skills are addressed in each of the lessons and allow students to be able to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends and be able to create their own structured accounts and written narratives.

  • The lessons are as follows:

  • L1 Dying for the vote (Free resource)

  • L2 An introduction to the Suffragettes

  • L3 Suffragists and Suffragettes

  • L4 Emily Davison – martyr or fool?

  • L5 Propaganda and the Cat and Mouse Act of 1913

  • L6 The impact of World War 1 on women’s rights

  • L7 How far have women gained equality?

  • L8 Suffragettes key word History Display

  • Each resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change. I have also included suggested teaching strategies to deliver the lesson and there are differentiated materials included. I have also included a Suffragette key word history display for the classroom.
