In Egypt, the women who protested for their rights alongside men faced a crushing disappointment after the 2011 revolution. Many women hoped that the revolution would bring equality but instead women protesters have been violently attacked and abused; women have been excluded from decision making and many political parties have stated their opposition to giving men and women equal rights in law. Egyptian women are still campaigning for their rights to be taken seriously.
These two lesson plans provide a cross-curricular scheme of work for 14-16 year-olds. Students investigate the current issue of women’s rights in Egypt using images, up-to-date information and peer-learning. They learn how to use persuasive writing techniques for a real and pressing purpose, and carry out structured peer-assessment of speaking, listening and writing skills.
