Gender Equality: Women’s Empowerment

OVERVIEW
How would our world be different if women had full inclusion and equality in the home, economy, and society? Taking the United Nations' sustainable development goal of gender equality as a guide, we will explore some of the inequalities women face globally and locally. We will consider how empowering women and girls can make a better world for all.

RECOMMENDED AGE
Grades 7+ | Young Adult | Adult

WHAT TO EXPECT
We will start off by inviting students to first consider the complex topic of gender and invite them to reflect on the role of gender in their own lives and experiences before shifting to discussion on women’s empowerment from a global lens and our own power in working toward a more equal world. Students will leave with concrete ways to support gender equality in their own homes and communities.

SUBJECTS: SOCIAL STUDIES | GENDER STUDIES | SOCIAL JUSTICE
