Celebrating Scotland’s Suffragettes:
How many Scottish Suffragettes can you name?
Protests & Suffragettes are excited to be working on a campaign to raise the profile of these Scottish women activists (both Suffragettes & Suffragists). We’ve partnered with Braw Talent to produce inspiring, dynamic, visually rich resources for use in primary schools, secondary schools and youth groups across Scotland.
Together, we want to highlight Scotland’s hidden histories and the women who led important protests like Helen Crawfurd and Agnes Dollan (both Suffragettes and founder members of the Women’s Peace Crusade), and Mary Barbour (1915 Rent Strike organiser). Their inspirational words and actions aren’t in many history books – but they should be!
Free to 100 Schools
Thanks to a successful crowdfunder, 100 Scottish Suffrage Education Packs will be distributed to schools and groups across Scotland – at no charge. We’re looking for teachers who’ll be inspired by these resources, and put them into action immediately. We’re especially interested to hear from schools who can commit to using our Packs in Art as well as Modern Studies Departments.

Included in each Scottish Suffrage Pack:
7 x decks of Scottish Suffragette Trumps Cards
A unique, playful deck of cards that features the name, image and information of over 30 Scottish Suffragettes and activists. These are high-quality bespoke cards, and young people will be able to engage in a fun, hands-on, ready to use game which encourages independent learning.
10 x ‘Rent Strikers & Suffragettes’ zine
Our zine has striking visuals and highlights powerful words spoken by these women. Students can read and use them as inspiration to create their own!
Lesson plans, slides & resources
Innovative, empowering lesson plans that align with the Curriculum for Excellence and can be used across multiple subject areas (Art, Modern Studies etc.). These additional resources will encourage teachers and youth workers to explore these women’s actions in fresh, meaningful ways.
