On the occasion of International Women’s Day we share a teacher’s story on using data in their work. The theme for International Women’s Day, 8 March 2022 is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”.
Gender equality is one of the fundamental principles of the European Union and during the recent decades it is generally acknowledged that significant progress has been made in this area. However, the gap between women and men still exists and is particularly evident both in the labour market and in the political and decision-making arena.
Furthermore, although attitudes towards equality are evolving, even today’s younger generation is not free from stereotypes and gender inequalities. This StoryMap, created within the context of the D3: Developing Digital Literacy Erasmus+ Project, aims to focus on the issue of gender equality in the political scene of Greece and also the EU and be used as supplementary educational material by teachers in secondary schools.
More specifically, this story map addresses teachers of the 3rd grade (Junior High School – Hellenic Gymnasium) who teach History, Social and Civic Education or Modern Greek Literature, as it can be linked to individual, corresponding themes concerning the feminist movement, human rights and social racism.
