Girls in school and the workplace
Mary Ann and Margaret needed a factory to make their fabric. In this factory they employed women.
In the late 1700s and early 1800s, it was uncommon for girls to go to school.

But Mary Ann went to a school in Belfast which offered education for girls and boys (like our primary schools today).

Equality and Inequality 
What is 'equality'?

equality – because they are equal. 
What is 'inequality'?

Throughout history many people have not had equality. Mary Ann felt very strongly about about equality. 
One of the things she campaigned for was equality in voting.

Voting Timeline
In the past...
Throughout history many people weren't allowed to vote
Before 1918
Only men could vote.
1903 - 1918
