International Women’s Day Activities

March 8th is International Women’s Day. This year to celebrate the occasion The Peace Museum has received funding from Bradford Council for a special project. As part of the Women of Peace project we have made 50  activity boxes that are being distributed to 50 families across Bradford (through 5 local schools). The boxes contain information about women who have made the world a more peaceful place, either through campaigning, making communities safer and better places to live, or protecting the environment. The women include Wangari Maathai, Sadako Sasaki, Greta Thunberg, Rosa Parks and local Bradford women Margaret Macmillan and Brenda Thompson. Children will be encouraged to learn about these women and be inspired by their actions to make their own homes and communities a more peaceful place to live. The boxes also include activity sheets and lots of craft materials that family can keep to support home learning. 

Downloadable Sheets

We are also making the sheets available for families to You can download the activity sheets about these inspiring women, and some activities to help children understand what it means to be peaceful based on our collection here:
