Speaking Out Project

Speaking Out Project to launch Women’s Aid resource

Later this month, the Speaking Out Project (a Heritage Lottery Funded project that is recording and celebrating the 40-year history of Women’s Aid in Scotland) will launch their new learning resource, aimed at young people in secondary education.

At the launch on August 29th, the Speaking Out Project will unveil their new resources which are aimed at engaging young people with the issues of gender inequality and domestic abuse, as well as activism concerned with – and the history of – Women’s Aid in Scotland.

The resources have been developed with secondary school education in mind, and have been designed to achieve CfE Level 3 and 4 Outcomes for Social Subjects. They will also fit the National 5 Modern Studies curriculum. The lessons and activities are also of benefit to more informal education settings.
