The committee’s main goals are to eliminate sexism and to increase the participation of girls and women in all aspects of education. The committee provides in-service opportunities for teachers on such issues as job sharing, curriculum resources for non-sexist teaching, pensions, financial planning, ending violence against women, women’s health issues, stress management, and creative writing. The committee has compiled a library of curriculum aids, videos and picture books that promote gender equity and non-sexist teaching strategies. Teachers may borrow material for their classes by contacting the SW chairperson.
