    Some of the barriers that exist to women's equal participation and representation in my community are that there are way fewer female world leaders around the world, so women don't get nearly as much representation in government as men. Also, women spend about three times as many hours caring for their families as men do, so they don't have as many opportunities to instead be making actual money during that time and advancing their own lives. But women account for 70% of all essential workers during the pandemic, so though they don't have as much representation in government, they're the ones risking their lives more in order to support their communities.

    Women face barriers in my religious community. This is because for ages and ages and ages it wasn't normal for there to be women rabbis, or cantors so now if you go to an older synagogue there are very little women.

    If you suddenly had the ability to invent a device that helps humanity, what would it do? (draw a pic and upload it you can!)

    I would invent a device that created insulin out of thin air, because insulin prices are getting really high and a lot of people have to sacrifice their school tuitions to pay for their or someone else's insulin. This device could save lives.

    These guiding principles can show up in our school community on a daily basis because we can follow these principles and we can treat everyone with respect as shown in these principles.

    2. Empathy: we can all show more empathy to others who are in different situations, whether they're black, gay, trans, or of any ethnicity we should all be considerate of each other.

    We can use Diversity in our school community on a regular basis by talking about Black history all the time, not just Black History Month. We can do this by comparing and contrasting their historical practices and beliefs to the historical practices and beliefs of the social groups that we learn about during any given time, especially in Social Studies class.

    These principles can show up on a regular basis because this is showing everyone that you should treat Black people the same as any other person, and if you have Black students in your school you should treat them with the same respect you would show anyone else.

    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use We are all connected: Wangari Maathai
    What did you learn about Maathai's work? How is her work connected to contemporary African diaspora and climate change? What is one connection between events in Africa and decisions made across the world in American?

    What I learned about Maathai's work is that she not only helped plant trees, but she's also advocated for human rights. Her work is connected to contemporary African diaspora and climate change because she's been teaching people to plant trees all around Africa, and has connected with the UN, letting the whole world know of her cause. Planting trees helps with climate change because trees absorb methane, which is one of the main greenhouse gases that create global warming. One connection between events in Africa and decisions made across the world is that women have been underprivileged in both places. Wangari Maathai was the first woman to become the chair of Veterinary Anatomy at a university in her region, while women around the world haven't been getting equal pay and are underestimated.
