Hi:-) I've just done an exam on the role and status of women (only women though) from 1900 to now..:-) I have some facts on a time line mainly about politics but I hope it's helpful:-) This was given to me by my teacher so I'm not sure where the info came from:)

1880- married women's property act which meant women could keep their property once they were married
1897- the 'National Union of Women's Sufferage'' (the suffragists) were formed by Millicent Fawcett
1902- education act allowed more working class girls to attend grammar school
1903- the 'Womens Social and Political Union' (the suffragettes) formed by Emmeline Pankhurst
1918- men over 21 and women over 30 given vote
1919- first women MP elected to parliament
1928- women over 21 given vote
1970- equal pay act
1979- Margaret thatcher became first women prime minister in Britain
1997 - over a third of house of commons were women MPs (first time)

I think you should pick the one you think you'll enjoy most and that interests you. Any language is going to be a challenge so you should choose one you'll be motivated to learn..:)

Would be grateful if you could tell me what sort of jobs  women did before ?

Posted: 23-06-12 15:50 by ? Secret - Team GR

of course:) but before what?! Before any world wars, only women who were in working class and had to work, worked. these were jobs such as the domestic service (servants) and were done by younger single women with no family ties. however, if they married they would have to give these jobs up.

then came WW1 and women had to do the jobs that the men were doing, as the men were fighting....

can give more detail when i know exactly what you are asking!:)

Hi Lucia,

It went well- thank you:) and yes- I was actually thinking about that today while I was sorting through my stuff:) if you could write me a list of things that you want to know ill do my best to help you. But my women project was only from about 1850 to the present day, and only on women in work, women at home and women in politics..:) there is a little bit about men but only in comparison to women:) when does your project have to be in by?

Posted: 26-06-12 16:17 by AmyPond

Another thought- I will post them in the resources so different topics are separate:)
