Rethinking Sexism, Gender, and Sexuality

Posted by Rethinking Schools on February 15, 2016

What if schools were places where children could explore their identities and passions without worrying about gender roles—without worrying about gender at all?

What if all groups marginalized by our history books—including women and LGBTQ people—were central to the content we teach and learn?

What if age-appropriate, supportive discussions of sexuality were welcome across grade levels and subject areas?

What if LGBTQ teachers and family members were embraced by schools as essential to the diversity that makes a community strong?

Questions like these inspired our new book, Rethinking Sexism, Gender, and Sexuality. RSGS is a collection of inspiring stories about how to integrate feminist and LGBTQ content into curriculum, make it part of a vision for social justice, and create class­rooms and schools that nurture all children and their families.
