International Women’s Day, held every March 8, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. What a great opportunity to celebrate women leaders in your classroom.
We have two great resources that celebrate awesome women who passionately fought for women to have the right to vote.
Kate Sheppard – Leading Suffragette
Kate Sheppard, featured on the New Zealand $10 note, is regarded as a pioneer of the suffragettes’ movement in New Zealand and a leader in ensuring New Zealand women were the first in the world to receive the right to vote.
We have a reading comprehension resource that explores the key moments in Sheppard’s life. This resource comes in two levels and also features a range of higher-order thinking follow up activities. Click here to see more.
