ACT works with the British Library on a Women's equality project

ACT Ambassador, Emily Owen, worked on a research project looking at the history of the Women's resistance movement.

ACT and the British Library on women’s equality

We are pleased to say that ACT ambassador for London, Emily Owen (Education and Engagement Assistant at the UK Parliament) worked with the British Library on a women’s equality research project, focusing on the Women’s resistance movement.

This is a historical resource with great citizenship links, as it looks at campaigning, protesting, and women throughout history involvement in the equality movement. The activities will help your students to reflect, debate and devise their own campaigns as they discover women past and present who have championed causes and their rights.

Explore women’s rights with the British Library’s map of women’s resistance in the UK and ACT’s accompanying Citizenship lesson activities.

Lessons are organised into three themes:

– Active citizenship

– Rights

– Representation
