A curriculum to build a more just, inclusive future
Welcome to the Women’s Human Rights Teaching, Learning, and Advocacy Community! Here you can learn more about issues affecting women worldwide and advocacy/action steps you can do to work towards justice.
In 2020, a group of volunteers from civil society, higher education, working with the Feminist and Women’s Movement Action Plan (fwMAP) came together to prepare curricula to support the CSW65 and the Generation Equality Forum. The result is this collection of resources that are adaptable across contexts to help educators, community organizers, and self-motivated learners gain insight on the greatest challenges to creating an equitable and flourishing society.

About The Resource
This Teaching, Learning, and Advocacy Resource (TLAR) is a user friendly resource for educators and activists comprised of learning modules organized around six themes dealing with the most pressing challenges to women’s human rights today. The goal was to create learning products from an incubation process led by scholars and activists at the UN. Click here to learn more.
Each module provides resources, guidance, and activities for educators and informal learning communities.
- Foundations of the UN: A primer
- Inclusive development, shared prosperity, and decent work
- Poverty eradication, social protection and social services
- Freedom from violence, stigma and stereotypes
- Participation, accountability and gender-responsive institutions
- Peaceful and inclusive societies
- Environmental conservation, protection and rehabilitation
Fifty academics, researchers, civil society leaders and UN experts spent 6 months working in teams developing 42 teaching modules. Click here to read the biographies of each of our contributors and learn more about their work outside of the TLAR.
