Women's History Festival May 21 2022

Fight for women you believe all Americans should learn about

Why Join us?

Right now, most Americans graduate high school having heard the names of fewer than 10 women in all four years of History class. Most of them are white. They're almost always in domestic roles. (Learn more.)  This year, we walk to change that. We walk to support TaW's comprehensive gender-inclusive four-year history curriculum for American High Schools. 

The stories teachers tell have a way of shaping our perception of the world. A history teacher’s stories are particularly potent because they carry the weight of truth. We have to stop presenting a picture of the past incomplete to the point of being false. If Americans don’t have context for understanding women in the past, how can we begin to imagine a future of gender equity?

What are we raising money for?

1. A comprehensive, four-year History curriculum aligned with national educational guidelines that instructs students about the rich and varied experiences of women and the history of gender inequality. Our curriculum uses evidence-based teaching practices that encourage students to create equitable and inclusive societies. Social studies teachers, grades 9–12, can use this curriculum to replace or supplement their current program. Our curriculum will include the following

  • World History Studies (9th grade)
  • World Geography Studies (10th grade)
  • United States Government (11th grade)
  • Social Studies Research Methods (12th Grade)
  • Personal Financial Literacy (12th grade)

2.  A 10-hour, self-paced, online training course to help teachers use our curriculum and integrate themes relating to gender, sex, sexuality, intersectionality, trans identity, and social justice into high school programs.

We will make these resources available for free to every high school educator in the nation for two full academic years.

Snapshot: What will change?

Our program transforms how students in the U.S. learn about women, gender, and power. It ensures that they will graduate with the skills and knowledge to make gender equity part of their lives, communities, and workplaces.

Impact: Educating 1,000,000 Americans to champion gender equity

Right now, some 15 million American students are in high school. We will offer our curriculum and training free to any high school teacher around the country for 2 years, impacting 1 in 15 students across the nation. The training course will be offered to all teachers, giving educators skills and guidance they can utilize in all their future teaching. That means that 10,000 teachers at more than 1,000 schools will be using our curriculum. These 1,000,000 students will go on to become informed champions of gender equity, expanding the impact of our curriculum to the national community.

Our diversity and inclusion statement

At Teach About Women, we believe our work is strongest when our team reflects the tremendous diversity of the students, families, and educators we serve. In our community, we value a wide range of identities and experiences. We define ‘women’ broadly, welcoming those who identify as femme, trans, non-binary, and gender-expansive. Following the lead of Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw, we also acknowledge that many women face multiple and intersecting forms of oppression. We actively seek to address the ways that gender intersects with systems of oppression such as racism, classism, ableism, heterosexism, colonialism, and xenophobia. We recruit BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ educators and seek to partner with organizations from communities that have been historically underserved by America’s schools.
