Women Through History

At Freshwater we celebrate women's history all year round. Last year we delivered over 300 workshops on inspiring women.

Our Inspiring Women workshop is a tour through awesome female figures through history from around the world. Hear from children at The Granville School about how they found this workshop:

"It was a fun way to remember the lives of those women who fought for justice."

"It inspired me to learn more about the history of women."

"I learned not only that women did great things in the past but they changed how our lives are today." 

Whether you are looking for somewhere to peak your children's interest or further their learning of amazing history figures, we have awe-inspiring of workshops for you. Our Florence Nightingale and Inspiring Women workshops are also available online.
