Pathways of Women’s Empowerment is an international research and communications programme established in 2006 with the aim of understanding and influencing efforts to bring about positive change in women’s lives. This online learning platform uses the data and findings from the research to support teaching about a range of issues relating to gender, women’s empowerment and development.
There are different modules designed for different age groups, including Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14), Key Stage 4 (ages 14-16) and Key Stage 5 (post 16, plus IB Diploma). There are four overarching topics: empowerment and women’s work; politics, equality and voice; women, representation and sexuality; and understanding and evolving empowerment. Modules consist of case studies from Brazil, Egypt, Ghana, Pakistan, Palestine and Sierra Leone (including films, photo galleries, infographics, timelines, text resources and interactive comics). There are also downloadable workbooks, clear learning objectives and guidance on how each module links to the National Curriculum.
