⭐ National Youth Summit on Gender Equity (Smithsonian American History Museum) – VIRTUAL
September 21 - October 12
The National Youth Summit brings middle and high school students together with scholars, teachers, policy experts, and activists in a national conversation about important events in America’s past that have relevance to the nation’s present and future. Guided by history, the 2021 National Youth Summit will provide a platform for learners nationwide to grapple with the enduring question ‘what will the future of gender equity look like?’
Gender has a powerful way of shaping how we feel, see the world, behave, and relate to ourselves and others. A person’s gender can be a vital, healthy part of who they are, in addition to something that can be a source of struggle. Anchored by a series of diverse historical narratives addressing the fight for gender equity, the 2021 National Youth Summit will examine how the construction of gender and gendered expectations have impacted young people across time and space and how this has created biases and inequities. The Summit will explore gender equity and gender bias through the lenses of sports, politics, fashion, music, and identity and examine ways this is complicated by race, ethnicity, and class.
