Remembering a Leicester suffragette

The Hall School welcomed Mr Peter Barratt, the Great Grandson of the Leicester suffragette Alice Hawkins, to lead workshops for our Year 5 and 6 classes. He explained to the children how as a young 13 year old entering the world of work she became interested in the disparity in pay between men and women. At a Hyde Park protest rally about equal pay Alice ended up in prison sharing a cell with Christabel Pankhurst which was the beginning of her Suffragette story. He shared family photographs and a video of the statue in Leicester being built. This really sparked the children's interest and they have created lines of enquiry which they are following up in their History lessons.
