As part of our work this year on British values and the birth of modern day Britain we examined women’s rights. We started back at the turn of the 20th century when women didn’t have the right to vote and a group of women called suffragettes fought a hard and dangerous battle to secure equality. Over time British society has improved and equality for all has been at the forefront of society’s conscience. Our British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect mean that Britain is a creative and free country where everyone can grow and pursue their ambitions.
We must remember that everyone’s rights need to be maintained and this is the responsibility of us all. If we ignore the rights of others our own are in danger.
