Hope you are having a great break... and that it is as productive or relaxing as you need it to be! Don't forget about the to do list we made in class :)
So I just thought I would share with you a significant event that happened this week that feels relevant to our class. Some of you may have already heard about this..
Just this week, President Barack Obama announced the creation of the first-ever White House Council on Women and Girls. There are decades of research on gender inequality that documents how girls and women have been economically, politically and educationally disadvantaged, but the new Council bought a lot of controversy.
What do you think about this? Do you have questions about it? Do you think we need a Council on Women and Girls? Why or why not?
Leave a comment if you have any thoughts.
