A simple guide to Herstory

Helping students and teachers to get the most out of Herstory

Many girls find themselves choosing career routes based on the limited role models around them, and their choices impact upon their life chances and earnings potential. The intention behind HerStory is to highlight different opportunities which may be of interest to young women who would otherwise have remained ignorant about them. The website is designed to help signpost girls to sources of information about what they may discover to be a potentially rewarding career.

We have gathered together stories from women at different stages of their careers who have taken a range of routes, and we have sought to present a varied picture of the engineering sector. We hope that you, your colleagues and your pupils will find this resource of interest and of use. Please do let us know your views and suggestions by contacting us.

You can download a guide with a selection of classroom activities based upon using the website below - it also contains the list of Frequently Asked Questions we also have on our site.
