For older learners, check out Oxfam’s resources which explore the inequalities faced by women in work globally, and follow a learn-think-act approach to creating change. Learners will use statistics, an infographic and a range of case studies from around the world to investigate the inequalities that women face in accessing decent work. They will consider their own personal standpoint and how they could create a campaign to raise awareness of this issue.
