Modern suffragettes - level 1

Modern suffragettes - level 1

12-10-2015 15:00

In the past, women could not vote. Some women wanted to change this. They were called suffragettes. They wanted the right to vote in Britain. This was in the early 20th century.

There is a new movie. It is called “Suffragette”. Actresses of this movie meet. They are at a premiere in London. They talk about the film.

Ten women fall on the floor. They lie on the floor. This is a protest. They protest against domestic violence. They want more help for victims of domestic violence.

Difficult words: vote (to choose the boss of your country), right (if you have a right to do something, you can do it), domestic violence (when a person in a relationship hurts the other person), victim (somebody who is hurt by somebody else).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about this protest?
