History KS3 / GCSE: How women won the right to vote in 1918
Kate Adie shows how women won the right to vote in 1918.
David Lloyd George, as the newly appointed Prime Minister, was a sympathetic ear towards the Suffragette’s campaign for equality; as many of the voters were away at war it allowed women to state their case.
The Representation Act is explained, while the Ladies Gallery in Parliament is shown as an illustrative symbol of the oppression that women faced.
Could be used to begin a concluding debate or research about how far women had really progressed in society during World War One.
This clip will be relevant for teaching History at KS3, KS4/GCSE, in England and Wales and Northern Ireland.
Also at Third Level, Fourth Level, National 4 and National 5 in Scotland.
This topic appears in OCR, Edexcel, AQA, WJEC, CCEA GCSE and SQA.
