List on Immigrant Women in The Promised Land
Words Many of
our immigrant female students initially view United
States as the "Promised Land" or the
land of opportunity. But then reality sets in.
Not only do they often face family stereotypes
of women's place in society, but they also deal
with hurtful labels. This project shows new immigrant
women how their foremothers have succeeded. It
boosts their self-esteem, and encourages them
to value education and mentoring programs.
Tip Watch for
students to develop confidence and take ownership
of this project when they help younger peers learn
about women's rights, Local success stories enable
TEACHBoston students to visualize their own potential.
