  • The GiST: The Girls in STEM Toolkit
    This rich website offers tools for girls, their families, and educators to help them follow their dreams into STEM careers. It aims to build girls’ confidence around STEM subjects and showcase programs, activities, and role models of girls and women in successful STEM careers. It invites girls into STEM in this way: STEM is practical, challenging, and fun to study; plus it gives you the skills you will need to solve real-world problems in the jobs of the future.
    The GiST is sponsored by the Australian Department of Industry, Science and Resources, and managed by Education Services Australia. Be sure to check out every tab and don’t miss the list of podcasts!

  • The Everyday Sexism Project
    With the progress made in women’s equality, sometimes folks have the false impression that sexism is a thing of the past. To refute this misunderstanding, Laura Bates created the UK website, The Everyday Sexism Project, where anyone can submit instances of sexism experienced on a day-to-day basis. The stories shared range from serious to minor, from sexual harassment to sexist comments. In addition, resources for support are provided.
  • All Call to Men
    The patriarchy isn’t working for anyone because it harms everyone. All Call to Men is an organization that works to transform society by promoting healthy, respectful manhood. Their work is grounded in their seven (7) core principles, which include centering marginalized voices and addressing intersectional oppression. Through trainings and educational resources for a variety of organizations, they utilize a social ecological model and actively promote gender equity.
