Information

YEAR GROUP

Years 5 and 6

A well-researched account of the women’s suffrage movement in which David Roberts’ enthusiasm for the subject shines through in the illustrations and the writing. Scenes pictured include a diagram of a woman performing martial arts moves on a policeman culminating in him tipping his helmet respectfully. Another depicts the backview of a woman, toffee hammer in hand after she has just smashed a shop window containing a fetching display of gloves – tellingly,  the word ‘Ladies’ emblazoned across the glass has also been shattered. While the focus is on the British women’s suffrage movement, included are portraits of women around the world who also fought for the vote.
