Ms Lawless’ 5th Class – The Suffragettes

Recently, 5th class explored the history of the Suffragettes.We learned so many interesting facts. Particularly, we explored the role of Emmeline Pankhurst in making the right to vote for women a key human rights achievement for the 20th Century.

Overall, we definitely have a lot to be thankful for when we look at how society has changed for the better since the right for women to vote was passed in 1928.

Please take a look at the research we undertook for our reports about the Suffragette movement.
