A Women and Girls Lead curriculum collection inspired by the PBS documentary series Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide based on the best-selling book by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.
Five lesson plans align with six short film modules that focus on gender-based violence in Sierra Leone, education in Vietnam, women’s economic empowerment in Kenya, maternal mortality in Somaliland, and sex trafficking and intergenerational prostitution in Cambodia and India.
Students will learn deeper context for issues affecting women and girls worldwide, make connections to issues in their own communities, and gain skills to get involved locally and globally. http://bit.ly/W3BWYG
