A Visit To The Women’s Library

A Visit To The Women’s Library

Our Year 13 History class had the opportunity to visit the London School of Economics and Social Sciences for a comprehensive workshop hosted by Dr Debbie Challis, one of LSE’s historian librarians.

We attended this historical workshop as part of our upcoming controlled assessment concerning whether militancy was a key factor in women getting the right to vote. The Women’s Library at LSE is England’s main library and museum resource on the women’s movement, concentrating on Britain in the 19th and 20th centuries. Challis introduced us to many types of history including ‘masculinist’ history and fun historical interrelated activities; which we all enjoyed and participated in.

Amy Benjamin, 13H, commented, “Wow! I mean where do I begin, I found this trip so refreshing. Plus, I even got my own LSE card to visit whenever I choose!”
