EX: Sexism – Women are more vulnerable to the consequences than men are. What could be done to overcome the inequalities that women face with teenage pregnancy versus men?
Stronger sex education in schools and programs based to educate parents on how to communicate to their children about safe sex.
Teaching children to have strong morals and values.
Educating children on STD’s and STI’s.
Push the federal government to fund programs that would encourage the use of birth control.
Men should be taught that sexually demoralizing women is not a sign of masculinity or admirable behavior. (Taught by parents, possibly taught in sex ed class?)
