25 Mini-Films for Exploring Race, Bias and Identity With Students
How do we get students to consider perspectives different from their own? How do we get them to challenge their own biases and prejudices? If, as Atticus Finch famously said, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … until you climb into his skin and walk around in it,” how do we get our students to do that?
In this lesson, we ask students to imagine what feminism should look like today. Then, we encourage them to consider the role that intersectionality should play in the women’s movement, to analyze how women are represented in the media today, and to learn more about the issues central to feminism’s agenda.
