New Classroom Resource for teaching about women’s empowerment

Despite the spread of globalization, democracy and digital communication, many women and girls throughout the world are denied access to these modern advancements, as highlighted in the May 2009 issue of the World Savvy Monitor on the Global Status of Women.

A new resource from ITVS, International Edition: Women’s Empowerment, highlights stories of women’s leadership around the world and helps young people explore their potential to become leaders, global citizens and active participants in the global movement for women’s rights.  Using clips from four award-winning films from ITVS, this resource is a great tool for showing the struggles women face around the world, and the ways in which they are working together to create change.

Available for FREE to educators, ITVS and COMMUNITY CLASSROOM are providing lesson plans and video modules help students understand international struggles and take an active role in addressing local concerns. Lesson plans are directed towards high school and college students.
