A new FREE interactive teaching resource from the UK Parliament’s Education Service
for students aged 11-14 brings the campaign for women's suffrage to life. The resource explores the first mass petition for women's right to vote, now widely accepted among historians as the start of the organised campaign.
Students will follow the journey through video, audio, quizzes, and interactive activities. They’ll start at the first mass petition in 1866 and end at the 1928 Representation of the People (Equal Franchise) Act, which gave women over the age of 21 the right to vote.
The resource is an introduction to the wider women’s suffrage movement and covers key curriculum themes for the teaching of history. It focuses on the original petition document to develop students' source analysis skills and provides context about women’s rights in 19th century Britain.
- Develops students' source analysis and critical thinking skills
- Provides a local history focus with downloadable worksheets for each UK region, supporting learning about suffrage campaigning and key women in students' local area
- Serves as an excellent introduction to cross-curricular teaching about the women’s suffrage movement
