In response to requests from students for information about the role of women in target-language cultures, a curriculum was developed by the Minneapolis public schools for women's studies in the high school foreign language classroom. The focus was on women in French, German, and Spanish-speaking countries. The role of women in these cultures has been neglected both by the cultures themselves and by American textbooks. Each of the curriculum packets in the three languages provides users with student materials and teacher guidelines. One section of the materials is devoted to sexism in language; another consists of biographies of famous women both in English and in the target language. These materials are represented here by brief extracts. Finally, a short slide-tape program to accompany the materials was produced. (JB)
