Beamish Museum - Women's Suffragette Movement

  • Description

    The issue of Women's Suffrage is explored here by six characters, each with different views both for and against women's right to vote. Meet the Miner, Shop Keeper, Wealthy Daughter, Teacher and Miner's Wife. Find out more about why even some women were against having the vote for themselves while others were committing crimes to fight for their cause. This resource is designed to be used in the classroom to stimulate discussion and is a good aid to prepare for the Suffragette Rally. The Suffragette Rally is an exciting education activity which can be booked for school groups at Beamish. It involves dressing up and rallying through the 1913 Town street before speaking in a real debate about the issues the people were talking about at this time of political upheaval. Beamish Museum offers a wide variety of hands on learning and educational activities, visit our website for full details.
