What is Learn with the Lords: Question Time?

Your students will have the unique opportunity to hear members of the House of Lords discuss a topic from the Government and Politics and Modern Studies curriculum.

When you sign-up you will be sent a link to watch the event on YouTube.

Which topic will be discussed?

In this special event to mark International Women’s Day, our all-women panel will discuss their experiences as female members of the House of Lords and what feminism means to them. As leaders and experts in their various fields, the panel will consider to what extent their gender has had an impact on their career. From this, our panel will reflect on the changing nature of feminism, from the first wave to the present day, and question to what extent the movement remains united by a shared goal.
