This week Caroline Flint visited Rossington Brownies to talk to them about women in politics and the centenary of women getting the vote.
Caroline shared with the Brownies her story of being the 201st woman to be elected as an MP, the history of the suffragette movement and told the girls that they have super powers.
Speaking afterwards, Caroline said: “I was really delighted to hear of the aspirations the Brownies had about their careers. The girls wanted to be vets, chefs, footballers and scientists – one girl said she wanted to cure cancer. Many of these professions are typically dominated by men, so I was pleased to see that they had not let this get in the way of their dreams”.
Brownie Leader “Snowy Owl” Tracey Wormald, said: “The girls engaged with the topic of women in politics and were happy to ask Caroline questions about her job. This is the second time Caroline has visited our unit and both times the girls have enjoyed it.”
Rossington Brownies, meet every Monday evening in term time, 6.15-7.40pm, at the Rosary Hall, Foljambe Crescent, Rossington, DN11 0LH
