BM visit

Year 12 students visited the Feminine Power exhibition at the British Museum. Students with a range of academic interests in Politics, History, Classics, and Art attended the trip in order to foster interdisciplinary discussion around issues of gender, feminism, history, and representation.

The exhibition presented historical items from many cultures alongside modern artistic interpretations of mythical characters. Students found it insightful and thought-provoking, particularly enjoying the opportunity to be exposed to more than just a western perspective on femininity. The trip also stimulated conversation around the use of language, modern feminism, and the issues surrounding a reimagination of the past.
