Teaching Toolbox

Whether you’re a teacher, a group leader, or an interested parent or friend, these tools will help you bring women’s political history and leadership into classrooms, youth programs, field trips, and beyond.

  • A “gender lens” to apply to existing materials and programs on leadership and civic life.
  • Lesson plans and other classroom resources about women’s participation in politics, including current and historic information.
  • Activities to help young people better understand the workings of their government and the roles that women play in the process.
  • Exercises to enhance the capacity of girls and young women for public leadership.
  • Lists of multimedia resources, including online videos showcasing women leaders; films and TV shows highlighting women in public leadership roles; and books (both fiction and non-fiction) that portray women and girls as leaders actively engaged in the democratic process.
