Challenging class and gender (Part 1)

In this lesson, we will explore how characters in the play challenge traditional class and gender roles. We will explore key context about gender as well as focus on the characters of Eva and Sheila as examples of women developing independence and breaking away from traditional gender roles. This lesson makes reference to the topics of violence and suicide. If these issues are sensitive for you, we recommend checking with a trusted adult before starting, or doing the lesson with a trusted adult nearby.
