Monica McWilliams, Chief Commissioner of the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and a signer of the historic 1998 Good Friday Agreement with Ireland, addresses the challenges of turning the promise of peace accords into stable post-conflict societies through the inclusion of women in political and civil leadership.

Shelley Correll explains how gender stereotypes influence career choices and why, as a result, men are dominant in maths and science related professions. We think teaching the reality and breadth of women’s experiences, roles and realities throughout history is one of the ways we can dismantle these stereotypes. It’s well worth a watch.
