Women In Government

One of the Guiders researched what happened in parliament as all these men decided whether women were persons and whether they should vote.

We gave the girls positions such as speaker, leader of the opposition, prime minister, etc.

We set up chairs to look like the house of commons and told them the argument. It was quite amusing to see how well thought out the girls responses were. The twist is that it was all these girls deciding whether "males" should vote.

This skit linked directly to drama, history, women's history and just plain fun.
