Worlds by Women

A new 2018 project for young women aged 16+

Worlds by Women is an exciting new project for young women aged 16+ which will research and celebrate the suffragette movement and the role of women in democracy and politics.

One hundred years since women gained the right to vote and in the wake of the #MeToo movement, Jacksons Lane has gained funding from the Womens Vote Centenary Fund for an exciting and ground-breaking theatre/education project entitled Worlds by Women.

Award-winning theatre director Katie Posner has worked with three sixth forms in Haringey and Barnet (St. Thomas More Catholic School, Hornsey School for Girls and Christ’s College Finchley) to create learning installations using theatre, digital design, art and sound that will explore women’s rights and roles in society.

75 students at these three North London educational institutions have produced three immersive, experimental performance-installations that will be followed by a debate around the themes that have been highlighted, which audience members are encouraged to join in with. Guest speakers from all generations will join audience members to participate in discussions around female economic and political empowerment, equality, inclusive space and girls’ education. #HearOurVoice

Through their participation in the project young women will have an opportunity to learn about women’s history with democracy and use that knowledge to think about how they want the world to be for women in the future.

Worlds by Women is funded by the Women’s Vote Centenary Fund.
