Call for more females in the curriculum

Women should be more visible across the curriculum, say campaigners who successfully fought plans to leave feminism out of A-level politics.

England’s Schools Minister Nick Gibb announced a change of heart after an outcry over the lack of female thinkers in the draft politics syllabus.

“We’ve seen the strength of feeling,” said Mr Gibb.

Science campaigner Jacquelyn Guderley said: “This should act as a springboard for more female role models.”

Ms Guderley, co-founder of the Stemettes group, which encourages girls into science, maths and engineering careers, said there should be more female representation “across the board, particularly in science, technology, engineering and maths”.

“You can’t be what you can’t see, which is why including varied female role models across all subjects is of crucial importance.”  More
