The Government is planning to ‚drop feminism‘ from the politics A-level

„The Government is planning to drop feminism from the A-level politics syllabus.

Under proposals from the Department for Education, the current section on feminism – which includes issues around sex and gender – will be removed. Some elements, such as the Suffragettes, remain on the new syllabus but are scattered across other sections, such as that relating to ‘pressure groups’.

In the Department for Education proposal, aimed at British sixth form and college students, the only woman in a list of seven political thinkers is Mary Wollstonecraft.

The open consultation on the planned changes to the AS and A-level syllabus is open until December 15 and campaigners are urging the public to oppose them.“
