International Womens Day

Happy International Womens Day to all!
Remember the Suffragette movement. These women fought long and hard for the rights of women, lets all take a moment to remember them on this important day.
My students had no idea who the Suffragettes were! I quickly changed that with a mini history lesson.
So in celebration of this day I want to share the words of Mrs Banks from Mary Poppins:

We're clearly soldiers in petticoats
And dauntless crusaders for woman's votes
Though we adore men individually
We agree that as a group they're rather stupid!

Cast off the shackles of yesterday!
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray!
Our daughters' daughters will adore us
And they'll sign in grateful chorus
"Well done, Sister Suffragette!"
