This introductory lesson includes the use of two picture books to tell the true story of two women who were faced with gender equity issues. One was in China and struggled with getting an equal education. The other was an African American girl who was not allowed to play on a sports team because of her gender.
The introductory lesson provides a short synopsis of both books and ides for starting a discussion on this important topic.
While this is rates upper elementary or middle school, the depth of discussion can be increased and these books can be used to introduce the topic in high school as well.
