Women who Dared - Exhibition Guide Ready!

Women who Dared - Exhibition Guide Ready!

The Year 8 Alternative Guide for the Sappho to Suffrage Exhibition at the Bodleian Library is printed and ready! The exhibition is open to the public at the Weston Library until February 2019, and throughout that time, all visitors will be able to pick up the Guide. The students have spent a number of weeks researching their chosen women and preparing the pages, and on Saturday, they had the opportunity to work with an illustrator on the final drafts. Bodleian staff also recorded a few of the students talking about their research for the Guide.

For an electronic copy of the Guide online, see  the Rumble Museum Blog: https://rumblemuseumsuffrage.wordpress.com/2018/03/11/year-eight-alternative-guide-for-sappho-to-suffrage-exhibition/

You can also visite the blog to see pages for each of the women our students chose. Once the audio recordings are all done, these will also be hosted there. You can click on each page here (scroll down to see all the entries): https://rumblemuseumsuffrage.wordpress.com/

I think the twenty-eight students involved are all very proud of their work and excited to have created an actual guide for the exhibition that will be used all year round. I'm planning lots of other suffrage-themed projects this year, so students that weren't involved in this particular project will have many other opportunities to do something!
