This packet is designed to raise precollege students' understanding and awareness of writing by women, to encourage women's studies in the curriculum, and to assist in identifying bias in language use and English/language arts curriculum materials.

Section 5 provides student activities for elementary, middle, secondary, and postsecondary levels as well as activities for worksites or community organizations.
