In addition to the screening pupils will have the opportunity to view the archive material that provided inspiration for the film, engage in a debate with the film makers, archive curators and outreach officers from Parliamentary Outreach, and meet other pupils from across Birmingham. This is a great opportunity for your pupils to engage with local women’s history and the wider debates around politics and voting today.
