Really...I want my students to talk about their feelings and then express it through their art.
I just feel like everyone is always so mean to me and the other girls… like we are not important enough
I think it’s time for a fun lesson… You are extremely important. The world wouldn’t be as powerful if we didn’t have strong women, and girls like you.
What do you mean?
Because of strong feminists, women were allowed to vote after 1920. Women can go to college, buy their own property, be an astronaut, president, pilot, artist, or whatever they want! Unfortunately, women did not get these rights hundreds of years ago, which is why it’s important to fight for our rights and be equal to everyone else. Just remember, just because we have these rules now for women, like voting, does not mean you should ever feel less than someone else based on gender. Never let anyone take your rights away from you.
what's a feminist?

A feminist is generally someone who believes that all genders should be treated with equality. They want to advocate for more equal rights between men and women. I’m really glad we started discussing such an important topic. We will end the class with brainstorming influential female artists and maybe painting something of our own to help relieve some tension and to allow your mind to flow creatively!
