Gender Equal? : A Lesson Unit
“In the nineteenth century, the central moral challenge was slavery. In the twentieth century, it was the battle against totalitarianism. We believe that in this century the paramount moral challenge will be the struggle for gender equality around the world.”
- Nicholas D. Kristof, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide
I developed this resource to promote the understanding of equal gender. It contains 5 lessons that include a movie screening for high school students aimed at understanding the causes of gender inequality and the steps that can be taken to eliminate this disparity. It is designed keeping the International Baccalaureate standards in mind but due to its flexible nature, it can be adapted in any curriculum. Please feel free to use this resource in your class by following the links below. I would appreciate any comments or feedback.
