William Penn Charter School Gender Equity Leadership Consultancy


Published on

Prompts for Conversation with Student Leaders of a Gender Equity Club at William Penn Charter School. Gone are days when boys are made of "snips and snails and puppy dog tails" and girls are made of "sugar and spice and everything nice"... or are they? Young people are barraged with messages about gender and heterosexual norms everywhere they go - their homes, their schools, the media, and more. How do gender and sexuality affect everything from boys struggling in school to girls dropping out of the STEM pipeline, from sexual harassment to anti-gay bullying, from eating disorders to plastic surgery? How do women and girls in particular take leadership in creating a school that supports positive self esteem, healthy identity development, and acceptance of differences?
