Happy International Women’s Day!
More coverage of the day: Interactive on world voices speaking on ending gender-based violence

On Guardian data: see political rights around the world mapped
Today is the 105th International Women’s Day. The theme this year is “The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum.”
It’s hard at times to keep the movement forward in focus given the war on women’s rights on the past year. For every piece of good news, there is a piece of bad news. The good news is the President Obama signed the Violence Against Women act yesterday. The bad news is that there are 22 members of the United States House and 31 members of the US Senate who voted against it.
In the micro level of comics it also seems like for every two steps forward there is one step back.
But let’s focus on the positive today. Let’s focus on the things that make us happy and give us hope.
What is it in superhero comics that you think is worth celebrating for women, right now? What best represents how you want to see women portrayed. Please let me know. You can see what others have said in the past this blog and I welcome your submissions.
Sitting above my home office is one my favorite pieces of superhero artwork. The piece by Lucy Knisley is, I think, close to perfect for today.
Every Woman, a Wonder Woman!
In our Virtual Classroom Visits Powerful Learning Practice watch the teacher teach the lesson and then engage in a threaded conversation around what she did that was in the best interest of kids or what we would change or sometimes just how do you do this.
Then we meet together online for 30 minutes and have a chance to debrief with the teacher about her lesson. We would love for you to join us.

Amazing 2-days that culminated with Multicultural Production this afternoon. It was so great to cheer on our singers, dancers, readers, and performers - so proud of this community!
The next two days I’ll be participating with my Sophomore mentoring group in View 360: DSHA Perspectives.
View 360 is a 2-day intensive learning experience for the entire school community. There are no classes, but instead all-day experiences and reflections on faith, intellect, morality, and social awareness. The goal is to provide a teach-in that inspires connected, well-adapted, and well-educated global citizens.
Students, teachers, and staff mentors will participate in:
- A celebration of the variety of perspectives present in our community
- “Boxes and Walls” experience - rooms that provide vignettes, research, and hands-on activities to gain perspective on socioeconomic status, multiracial, LGBTQ, and portrayals of women in media misconceptions and misrepresentations
- Curriculum based on viewing the film CRASH
- Guest speakers
- Multicultural student performances
It’s an exciting opportunity for me and our young women, so I’ll be focusing my energies on this for the next 2 days. I created the above “brick” to prepare for one of our activities Building A Bridge To Peace. Fanmail, ask, or email/tweet me if you want to know more.
