Sobre Marzo: Resources for Teaching About Latina & Latin American Women

Vamos a Leer | Sobre Marzo: Resources for Teaching About Latina & Latin American WomenHola a tod@s,

Here we are and it’s already March! We’ve spent the last month drawing on Black History Month for inspiration. In the weeks ahead, we’ll use Women’s History Month  for similar prompting. As with all our  resources, though, we hope that you’ll find them useful for complementing classroom discussions throughout the whole year.

We’ll  explore Women’s History Month through sharing resources on Latina and Latin American women, focusing on both the historical and contemporary conditions as well as the famous and the everyday. Throughout, we’ll consider representations and how those depictions effect viewers and readers.

Although we  don’t have the space this month to delve into gender constructions and stereotypes, we acknowledge that gender is a complex social construct. We rely on it here  to simplify the conversation, but hope that these resources  serve as a source of inspiration for people regardless of whether they do or do not conform to gender expectations.

Join us and share your thoughts and ideas for how we can expand and diversify Women’s History Month in the  classroom and in the community!

Saludos,
Keira
