Suffragette Webpicks

Posted by Speakeasy News > Thursday 08 September 2016 > Webpicks

The film Suffragette is an excellent occasion to talk about the movement for votes for women in the UK in the 19th and 20th centuries.

As well as the trailer, below, the site for the Suffragette film has a clip called "We will win", which would work well in class.

There is also a gallery of inspiring women that you can upload examples to. Why not ask your pupils to choose an inspiring woman and upload an image and a short description?


There is an B1 audio interview with interactive comprehension activities about Suffragettes in the Banque de ressources anglais cycle 4:
Audios > B1 > École et société > Interviews > Votes for Women

The British Film Institute has several short newsreel films of Suffragettes online.
