Poverty Ends with a Girl is a Women' Studies Creative Inquiry that focuses on the unique challenges that adolescent girls face around the world and the important effect that girls' education and empowerment has on alleviating global poverty. Projects for this semester:We are working on projects surrounding advocacy and education. We have split into two teams to develop curriculums. One curriculum will be used by our group as a guide for educating internationally-focused Clemson organizations about the importance of promoting gender equality in their overseas work, and the other curriculum will design a culturally-sensitive, globally adaptable women's studies curriculum for adolescent girls. We plan to finish these curriculums this semester and begin presenting to local area groups.
