Why do schools around the country continue to perpetuate toxic gender dynamics?

Outdated guidelinesLack of resourcesLack of training
Currently, learning guidelines, standards, and history programs around the nation leave women out almost entirely. This makes it difficult for even the most motivated teachers to include rich material about women or gender inequality.Most textbooks, historical surveys, and standardized tests include little to no information on women. Without age-appropriate resources for teaching about women, teachers often leave them out entirely. Teacher lack the time and the support from the communities and administrators to build truly thoughtful resources that address the lives of women.

What is our solution?

Change policy.Change classrooms.Build communities.
We petition schools and districts to include more information about women and gender in their programs and curriculum. We design resources for teachers and educate them, through in-person training and online courses, to use them effectively in their classrooms. We host conferences, create online forums and databases, and collaborate with mission-driven institutions to support educators in changing how we teach about women and gender.

What is our impact?

Over the next five years, we will give 10,000 teachers at 1000 schools the tools and training they need to transform 1,000,000 students into champions for gender equity.
