How can we use storytelling as a route to gender equity in the classroom? What can educators do to ensure students are presented with female role-models? Hear from Elena Favilli, author of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls with suggestions on broaching the topic of gender inequality with students. Advice on discussing the lack of women in history textbooks, encouraging girl students to explore their interests, and finding support from boy students in the process.
