“The Deeds not Words workshop was a real success. Our students really enjoyed having the opportunity to debate with their classmates and particularly being able vote on the motion from the view point of 19th century women and then 21st century women gave them the chance to reflect on how far women’s rights have come in the West ” Ockbrook School
