Kamala Harris' historical election in January was a win for female leaders in the United States. While we have yet to have a President in a pantsuit many developed nations have to wild excitement of the people. Why is that? In our society, it is considered breaking norms for a woman to be in such an esteemed position of power. Women have been fighting the glass ceiling for decades. It has been considered a more masculine role-but this isn't the case in all of human history. Matriarchal societies have survived and thrived throughout human history. It makes you think of how arbitrary stereotypes are-at some point they were just a perception that a particular society decided was a fact.
This is why it's so important we teach our students how to question everything! We can assume nothing about the world, we truly have the power to chose our own path.
