HISTORY

After October half term we will be learning about the famous St. Helens footballer LILY PARR!

"The game of football is quite unsuitable for females and ought not to be encouraged."

These were the words of the Football Association in 1921 as they banned female footballers from playing on professional pitches, leaving them with essentially nowhere to play.

We will also learn about the ways in which women were, and still are treated differently and how this affects life for women.
