Step 1: We offer a model for national change.
Gone are the days of “color-blind” and “gender-blind” classrooms. By ignoring the power dynamics of the past, classrooms perpetuate them. Students all over America deserve to learn about women. Not only does this campaign promote awareness of the lack of women’s voices in classrooms, it provides students and teachers with meaningful action steps they can take to work for change.
Step 2: We spread awareness and offer support.
Through targeted emails and social media, Teach About Women contacts, supports, and advises educators around the nation as they
- Identify and enumerate the lack of women and gender-inclusive materials in their own state curricula.
- Propose specific changes and revisions.
- Petition decision-makers in their own states.
Step 3: We gather experts in various fields, including women’s studies, history, and pedagogy to re-write state curriculum across the nation
Once we have spread awareness and galvanized support, we gather experts in various fields to create new state learning standards–standards that reflect a complete picture of the human experience including the rich, diverse, and intersectional lives of women and men.
