Project Reflection Paper

Discrimination is the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex (Oxford Dictionaries). One of the main forms of discrimination that will be discussed is discrimination against women in all forms from the color of their skin to education and the workforce systems. The workforce is one of the main places where most women are being discriminated.

Therefore, with everything mentioned thus far I have chosen Leadership and Power as the topic for discussion with the focus for adolescent girls. I have conducted a trivia game as well to better understand the idea of why leadership and power is an important topic and the information that you will obtain as well.


Leadership and Power is a topic that should be taught amongst both boys and girls. There are many women who were leaders and who are leaders. Unfortunately our society has kept important women who has made a difference a secret and only have a few women to be known. I believe that society does this to make the statement that women are not meant to be leaders which makes it hard for past and future generations to know and understand that women can be leaders no matter what the color of their skin exhibits or their gender type.
