Where are the Women?— Summit investigating why women are vastly underrepresented in U.S. history and social studies curriculum

Open to: U.S. History and Social Studies Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Join an amazing line-up of thoughtful leaders, historians and education specialists as we roll up our sleeves to dig deep into why so few women are included in the curriculum and how educators can expand U.S. history to be more inclusive and accessible.

The 2-hour event will feature a keynote by renowned cultural historian Martha S. Jones (author of Vanguard: How Black Women Broke Barriers, Won the Vote, and Insisted on Equality for All), and poetry and land acknowledgment by Poet Laureate Joy Harjo.  A panel discussion and Q&A will examine factors that have limited women’s presence in textbooks, educational standards, and curriculum.
