Steve RobertsHost: Mr. Roberts is a teacher from Australia with ten years of experience - the last six of which have been in London. He loves history, learning, and teaching. The reason he loves all of these is because he likes knowing about the world he lives in, why it is the way it is, how it got the way it is, and how it might change.

Women did not have the right to vote until the 1900s in the United Kingdom. In this class, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of 4th of June 1913 including Emily Davison's encounter with the King's horse, Emily Davison's life, and the impact of her death. This class is great for students in Years 7 - 11 and is a great class to solidify knowledge on the topic or for those who want to know more about women's rights!
