SDG#5 Gender Equality- Empowerment Star

Grades: 7th Grade, 9th Grade, 8th Grade
Subjects: Social Studies

Student Instructions

Think about the questions on the first slide. Answer them honestly about how you feel right now, not how you hope to feel in the future. Think about all aspects of your life, your community and your interactions ith the opposite sex, parents and people with power. Circle on the star the number that corresponds to each answer given. Connect the dots. Someone who is completely empowered (all 5s) will make a perfect, full sized octagon. Someone who is not empowered at all (all 1s) will make a tiny octagon. Share your star with a mix of boys and girls who feel comfortable to share their empowerment stars and compare the differences. Consider what star shapes might be like to girls and boys in other countries.
