We had such an excellent discussion around Gender Issues in our last class, I am excited to read what you have to say.
I am extending the deadline for the post to March 31 because I did not post guidelines earlier, and I want you to enjoy your break.
Below is the reading list from the syllabus. There are a lot of interesting and illuminating articles and links about gender.
Also, did you know that an Iranian American woman won an Oscar for her film, "Period. End of Sentence", about girls who make their own sanitary napkins so they can go to school. It is now on Netflix. I haven't seen it yet, but hope to during the remainder of the break. You might want to take a look at it. And, you can look for other episodes of Girl Rising, the film we began to watch in class. Most of the episodes are less than 15 minutes.
