About this Event
Join Angeline Aow (WomenEdDE) and Kyra Kellawan (WomenEdESP) on 18 May for this #HeartToHeart discussing the concept of Feminist Schools.
Instead of calling for more feminism in schools, we will discuss and dissect the recent concept put forth that we need feminist schools – schools that identify as feminist institutions, and a curriculum and education policy that embraces feminist values and goals as foundational, not an optional add-on. If in the current COVID-19 crisis, schools and other institutions will strip everything down to the “bare essentials” of education, are conversations about feminism and gender in danger of being pushed aside? According to the UN Commission on the Status of Women, “ full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls” – is paramount to our collective COVID-19 recovery?
Three prominent education changemakers will discuss the complex syntax, the effect of this call for change, and the meaning of what it means to lead – or work within – feminist schools or institutions that embody equality.
- Are you a feminist?
- What has been your response to the article and your call for schools to become feminist institutions?
- GEC: how does your app ensure that schools start to listen and embody equality?
- Is your school a feminist institution?
- Is your institution cultivating feminists?
- How to become a feminist institution
- What would you be looking for in a feminist school?
