Feedback form is now closed.
This session will familiarize teachers with the concept of post-feminism in a neoliberal context. Post-feminism has the ability to deflect conversations about gender inequality, and can influence both teachers' and students' critical examination of broader social inequalities in society. Media messaging, language, and gender roles create a landscape of ideas, beliefs, and values that suggest that conversations about gender inequalities are passe, even though inequalities continue to exist. This session will open a dialogue about how citizenship education, both within and beyond the social studies curriculum, can disrupt this the post-feminist landscape, so students can approach social justice issues with compassion and empathy.
