Relevant competency aims:
- understand, elaborate on and discuss lengthy discourses on general and specialized subjects
- elaborate on and discuss a number of international and global challenges
Approximate use of time: 25-30 minutes, depending on class size.
Required reading: Binah Shah’s text “Want to end sexual violence against women? Fix the men!” (page 47-48 in E2).
Possible follow-up activities: The arguments gathered in the class discussion might serve as a starting point for a discussion on other aspects of gender inequality as found in E2, as well as a broader discussion on the topic of #metoo.
