Inspiring Women

International Women's Day (IWD) on 8th March has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD run by the Suffragettes in 1911. The day aims to celebrate and bring into focus the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. 


Our immersive workshop, Inspiring Women, brings these ideals to life. It highlights significant women of the past and present, inspiring your pupils with their lives and legacies.

Led by Hera, the Greek Goddess of Women (and Marriage), the workshop will introduce children to a range inspirational women from various spheres: adventurous and pioneering women, women in the arts, women in politics and women in science.

Visiting different locations and time periods, the children will take part in activities to explore the lives of extraordinary women through history such as Amelia Earhart, Frida Kahlo, Rosa Parks and Edith Cavell, celebrating their achievements and considering how the children themselves might become inspirational people of the future. 


A fantastic addition to your school’s International Women’s Day celebrations!

"The children were enthralled and excited from the first moment. Wonderful energy, fab, factual, and entertaining. I learnt things I didn't know myself!"
