Flowers Tumblr Themes

Chloe.18.England. I blog stuff.

So today we had an Edwardian themed day at school, and a few friends an I decided to start a Suffragette flashmob, as we feel that, especially in an all girls school, the fight for equality shouldn’t be pushed aside, and really it was the Women’s suffrage movement that started off our modern feminism. We didn’t expect much, but by the end we had gone trough the whole school waving banners and handing out replica leaflets encouraging the “Votes for Women” theme and we ended up with nearly 200 people following us, despite heckling from the male staff (in character as edwardian men of course) and it really lifted my spirits. People do care about women’s rights, they just been someone to set the wheel in motion and then they will follow. Maybe that’ll be us. 

(I’m the one on the far right, in the grey skirt.)
