About This Resource

The purpose of this guide is to encourage the use of feminist film as a support tool for discussions about gender and human-rights issues within classrooms. Status Quo? consists of three chapters. The guide focuses on the first chapter, which deals with violence against women. It will support educators in facilitating discussions about women’s history, the normalization of gender stereotypes, and violence against women. Educators should be mindful that some of the film content and related discussions may trigger emotional responses among students.
