To help your class' understanding of gender inequality, we've packaged:

  • A factsheet to highlight how gender inequality affects women and girls in a multitude of ways
  • The story of Sento, who farmed land she would never be allowed to own and couldn't afford to send her children to school
  • A discussion-based activity which explores how gender inequality prevents girls from going to school
