Educators in schools nationwide are teaching students about historical and current events that are shaping women's rights in honor of International Women's Day, celebrated March 8. Among other things, the American Federation of Teachers is promoting a lesson plan -- available at teachhumanrights.com -- focused on Malala Yousafzai, a girl from Pakistan who was nearly killed for fighting for the rights of females to attend school. In one lesson, students use a mobile application to create resumes for famous women in history.
