Women ’s History Month 2019

teaching

We had very exciting and successful celebrations for Women’s History Month in 2019. Attendance was robust!

Students saw an original one woman show about using activism to work toward the obliteration of sexual assault; they learned about the life and times of Mary Shelley,  author of Frankenstein; they studied the poems of sister-giants, Lucille Clifton and Ntozake Shange, they heard Norma Cantú speak about her newest work of fiction; they watched a documentary about the extraordinary life of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; they learned about Wonder Woman as maverick cartoon character and movie icon; they watched a film that characterizes the plight of a young boy seeking to unite with his mother who emigrated to the US for a better life; they interacted with an author of a book emphasizing gender equality and fairness for very young children and experimented with their own storyboards; they participated in a well-known game show, “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” in order to heighten awareness about sexual harassment: what it is, what to do about it.

A rich month of learning and engagement!
