Violence against women and classroom resources

One of the workshops we discussed having was a self-defense class. We should also consider having a workshop that might inform others about the violence against women in our society and where it comes from.

I found the White Ribbon campaign has an educational action kit on the subject. I also found a compilation of many subject matters at the site Miss G.

One book I found that dealt with teaching inequality in the classroom was Open Minds to Equality, which encompasses more than gender equality issues.I can’t find it in digital form, so we may need to find a copy – which MCTC’s library does not have.

I am still actively looking for short stories lacking gender – which for some reason is much harder than I assumed it would be. If need be, we may just have to take a story and change its character so we have no idea what gender they are.
