Student talking to workshop leader
Book now

From bodily autonomy and the right to education, to self-expression and protest, the Library's new exhibition explores how feminist activism in the UK has its roots in the complex history of women’s rights. Join the live debate and add your voice to the many fighting for a fairer world for everyone.

We’ve created a range of digital learning materials for schools and colleges to support virtual engagement with the exhibition. Ideal for History, Sociology, English and Citizenship and linked to key exhibition themes, the materials are designed for easy use in the classroom but also suit independent study.


How does it work?

  • When you contact us, we’ll connect you with one of the British Library Learning Facilitators who created these materials
  • They will share the materials with you, explain how they can be used in your classroom or for remote learning, and answer any questions you might have. They will arrange to do this with you over email or in a video call
  • You use the materials with your class to run the activities in lesson time
  • After you’ve run the session/s, your Learning Facilitator can offer a 30-minute video call for your class to share what they have been working on and ask questions on the topic or about the British Library
  • We will be in touch to request feedback from you and your class on how everything went, as part of our commitment to continual improvement of our programme


 These materials will be available from mid-December. Click the 'book now' button below to request them.
