2nd Tattenhall Rainbows and Tattenhall WI celebrate Girl and Women Power!
This term, 2nd Tattenhall Rainbows, through fun and play, have been celebrating 100 years since women got the vote! The Rainbows have learnt all about the suffragettes and the part they played, which even lead to questions about equality between other social groups and fairness for all! We thought about the careers that women follow nowadays and how standing up for what we believed in was important! The group of 5 to 7 year old girls had some very strong views about being fair to all and were definitely not afraid to share their views! The suffragettes would have been very proud!
To coincide with such a historic year for women, UK Parliament launched a project which encouraged community groups to come together to discuss equality, to think about how far society has progressed and to ponder what may happen in the future. The Rainbows were thrilled to host a tea party and invite Tattenhall WI, another strong women's group from our village.
During the afternoon, the Rainbows and WI worked together on a whole host of activities, including eating cake (!) whilst discussing all things to do with girl and women power and what makes women so great! The discussions were fascinating with both girls and the older women sharing their experiences. The Rainbows wore their own homemade rosettes (in the style of the Suffragettes) with pride, which displayed the Rainbows own thoughts such as 'Girls are equal to boys' or 'Girls can do anything'.
A lovely afternoon was had by all, with one Rainbow even asking at the end "This was so fun! Can the WI join Rainbows and we do things together every week?"
It is true to say that Women Power is very much alive and well in Tattenhall!
