Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "First Lady Hillary Clinton’s Address to the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women" by First Lady Hillary Clinton.

In the speech “First Lady Hillary Clinton’s Address to the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women,” Clinton tells the United Nations why women’s rights are human rights and encourages the world to protect those rights.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Men & Women and War & Peace as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How do we define the roles of men and women?" and "How can we achieve peace?"
