This Class is based on the popular book Amazing Women and is designed for young girls.
Unesco states “Of the world’s 774 million illiterate adults, 2/3 are women. The share of illiterate women has not changed for the past 20 years. Among the world’s 123 million illiterate youth, 76 million are female. These gender disparities remain persistent, with little change over time.” In this day and age, we hope to teach the world, girls can do anything! In this class we will read about all sorts of model women and what they do. For ages 8-12, students can look up the women on their own in the following book (https://u10014.myubam.com/p/6834/amazing-women), or just participate in the classes.
