Home Secretary talks women and democracy with Altwood film club

A discussion about women and democracy and its portrayal in film took place between Altwood CE School pupils and Theresa May.


The Maidenhead MP and Home Secretary visited the school in Altwood Road on Friday, April 4 to speak to 30 pupils including members of the school's film club as part of charity Into Film's initiative for Parliament Week.

The initiative uses film to promote discussion and debate about parliament, democracy and related issues. 

Before the Maidenhead MP's visit pupils watched Made in Dagenham and The Iron Lady, selected because they encompass the theme.

Mrs May shared her views about the films and democracy before a question and answer session.

She said: "Cultural studies, including through film, has direct educational benefits as well as being an important part of a rounded education."
