Thought of the Week - Equality

Theme: Equality

Quote:

“Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values.”

  • Ellen DeGeneres 

Explanation:

Our society is a lot more of an equal place compared to what it was even 50 years ago. However, there are still many things that we see around us that show that we aren’t quite there yet.  There are campaigns by people standing up for what they believe in which is changing the path for the future.  Over generations this has cost people their lives, their place in society and their relationships but because of their determination they have changed our society today.

  • Where do you think our society will be in 50 years’ time?
  • Where do you see inequality in the world? How do we change that?
  • In groups have a look at how the world has changed over the past 10/20/50/100 years when it comes to different types of inequality.
