Skarhult launches six videos for school children about women´s history.
History textbooks for school children have long been criticised for mentioning too few women. In a newly published Swedish history textbook for 8th graders there are more named Nazis than there are women. As a counteraction, Skarhult’s Project Manager Alexandra von Schwerin releases six educational videos about powerful women through the centuries, based on the exhibition Power in Disguise at Skarhult. The videos are a unique private initiative to compensate for the pressing lack of women in Swedish school children’s deficient history education. They are recommended as a complement to the history education in the intermediate and senior levels. Teachers are welcome to use the videos with its accompanied study questions in their teaching. Briefly, it is time to learn history differently!
