In honor of Women’s History Month, the New York Times Learning Network asked its spring Student Council—25 teenagers from all over the United States, as well as from China, South Korea, England and Canada—to search the Times and find the most interesting pieces they could on the broad topic of gender.
“Using both Times search and Times Machine, they unearthed everything from a 1911 report on the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire and a 1972 Times review of ‘Free to Be … You and Me’ to current articles, videos and essays on Hillary Clinton, campus rape debates, gender pronouns, abortion, Title IX, parenting, and the struggles of the transgender community.”
