Today we are looking at how attitudes towards women changed during the Victorian times. Work through the slides and then choose 1 of the women from the Influential women from the past worksheet, carry out some research to answer the questions and create a factfile. There is factfile template included in the worksheet pack which you can use to structure your writing or you can create one of your own.

Read through the slides below to find out about the Suffragettes and the impact they had in raising awareness of women's rights. Tomorrow, you will be doing a double page spread on the Suffragettes. Use the slides, and the websites below, to carry out research for you double page spread. Think about what sub-headings you might want to include before beginning your research, these might be:
