Week Five: Achieving Gender Equality
Updated: Nov 26, 2018
Wow, what a time it is to be a female of the future! This week we stressed the importance of not only women and girls in this discussion of gender equality, but also the influence that men and boys can have when standing up for equal rights. How can we live in a balanced society when men and women are not paid equally or valued the same in society? How does it feel when a friend stands up for you? Pretty great according to our girls here at Powergirldance. We discussed two quotes that touched on this subject:
"Achieving gender equality requires the engagement of women and men, girls and boys. It is everyone's responsibility"
" An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere"
