Supplemental Sessions

The content for Sessions 6 and 7 were determined by the presenters, and were not the original material of Ms President US.  Below are templates that can be used to adapt to a local presenter who has the background and skills to cover the topic in their own manner.  These topics are important, but not core to the goals of Ms President US.

Women’s History presentation – PPT 

Mentor-led Activities (handout from CT Women’s Hall of Fame) – PDF

Session 8:

This session can be used to cover content missed during any session that may have been cancelled due to weather or other conflicts.   If none of the sessions was cancelled, the girls will benefit from additional time to prepare for their campaigns, practice with their campaign teams, create campaign posters, and/or gain support from the Mentors.

Alternatively, the following 20-minute video is an excellent one to show and discuss (given it was not already show in the Women’s History session).  It is a documentary about the history of women in leadership positions, including the 50 women heads of state who have been part of the United Nations.

50/50: Rethinking the Past, Present and Future of Women + Power (Video link)

It is fast-paced, engaging, and full of information that is not well-known, or publicized.  Note:  Some of the words used in the video may require definition in advance or following the showing.   Here is a Glossary for 50/50 – PDF.
