Learn about the Suffragettes.

An online resource from the UK Parliament with supporting worksheets that brings the women’s suffrage campaign to life for students aged 11-14.

The resource explores the 1866 petition which called for women’s right to vote and was signed by women across the United Kingdom. Students follow the journey of the suffrage campaign through video, audio and quizzes, while source-based activities help pupils develop source analysis skills.

The supporting regional worksheets provide a local history focus for students to learn more about suffrage campaigning and key women in their area. The resource is designed for students to use independently using a tablet or computer.
