        The Right to Work | Women's Empowerment | Lesson 3

        In this lesson, students investigate the concept of unemployment and learn how it is currently reported in the U.S.. Students are presented with the fact that the right to work is a universal human right according to the United Nations; they can then apply this knowledge to better understand working conditions for indigenous women in Bolivia. After listening to various voices involved in the conversation, including the Bolivian president, union organizers, political advocates and the workers themselves, students research a political organization and create a media campaign.
