Provides a practical tool to help educators begin to make a gender, race and class analysis central to the existing curriculum, pedagogy and the learning environment. Content is designed on a cross-disciplinary basis in order to be relevant and applicable in a variety of subject areas - social sciences, family studies, science, language arts and women's studies. The collection of young women's voices reflects how assumptions held by the dominant culture restrict young women's lives: assumptions about race, woman's place, sexuality, relationships, physical ability, equality and others.
