   schema:description "From the Introduction: This project is the culmination of our work during the last fourteen years in uncovering and using women's history materials in the K-12 classroom. In addition to our classroom teaching, we developed a Junior and Senior High School world History curriculum on women and a cross-cultural anthology on the female adolescent experience. As consultants, we have worked with teachers bringing new materials to their attention and demonstrating strategies for classroom use. In the last few years the number of good quality student World History resources about women has increased; yet it has become obvious to us that this exciting new scholarship is not reaching the teacher. Although bibliographies are available for American History courses, no comparable list exists for Junior and Senior High World History and Area Studies. For this reason, we applied for and received a Women's Educational Equity Act Grant from the U.S. Department of Education. This allowed us to do the research for this book which pulls together a wide variety of materials to stimulate both teacher and student interest in women's place in history. Women's stories are central to the story of humankind. Women's activities have been essential in the creation of community, culture, and civilization as the resources in this bibliography will affirm. Today, new statistics and studies reveal women's crucial role in global issues. In any study of problems relating to refugees, global assembly lines, development, health, and education, women are in the forefront, helping to resolve the issues that directly affect them. Third World women in particular have emerged as active participants in defining problems and working for their solution. In addition to struggling against the patriarchy inherent in their own cultures, they are also struggling against the legacy of colonialism and the cultural and economic oppression by foreign systems. Yet their voices have been largely ignored in educational texts, media, and literature for the classroom, and their contributions and strengths have remained an untold story. Instead, negative stereotypes of passive and mistreated women stand unchallenged. This leave the impression that Third World women are complicit in their oppression. We need to hear from the women themselves in order to learn about their day-to-day lives, how they deal with their concerns and how they create bases of power-not only today but throughout time. Even where western civilization is emphasized, scant attention is paid to the important and diverse roles of women. The resources listed here will help rectify this omission by providing information regarding European women's participation in general and the lives of notable women in particular."@en ;
