The Whole World Under One Sky: Gender Roles
From Jeff Layne
Young educators from 17 countries who are part of the TEA (Teaching Excellence & Achievement) program share information about gender roles in their cultures. This cultural exchange program is financed by theU.S. State Department and implemented by International Training Programs at CSU, Chico in cooperation with IREX in Washington, DC. The educators, divided into four groups, each give a brief presentation about the current roles of men and women in their countries: (1) an all-African group (Burina Faso, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mozambique); (2) a group from Russia and adjacent countries (Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia, Uzbekistan); (3) a group from countries in four continents (Belarus, Cambodia, Ecuador, Georgia, Sudan, Venezuela); and (4) a group from South Asia and Africa (Bangladesh, Ghana, and India). The session ends with questions from the audience.
