Project: "Nice Women Don't Want The Vote"

My project talks about the history behind the women's suffrage, who was behind it and how it impacted today's world.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I learned about my topic was how empowered women truly are and how their stern belief in equality got them to make a change in Canada.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I have learned that anyone can make a difference despite your gender, race, or age.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

My life today is different from those I studied in my project because today's society has evolved into a more accepting society. Women have slowly been able to have the same rights and opportunity as men and i hope it continues to do so.

    This is an informative and engaging presentation. It shows the role women had in making change in our society and ultimately leading to voting rights for all Canadians. Voting is no longer based on wealth/class, ethicity , race , gender or sexual preference. Rather it is given to all who vote.

    This is a very informative video. Sebastien did an impressive job in the presentation and delivery of this report thus keeping the viewer interested to watch it until the end. It is also very interesting to see a kid this young talking about this kind of topic and I must say that he did a really great job on his research. Kudos, Sebastien!
