Greenwich Free Press: GHS Teachers Lead National Harvard Case Discussion on Democracy, Women’s Rights with League of Women Voters

This is an excerpt from an article that originally appeared in Greenwich Free Press. 

On Tuesday Greenwich High School teachers... moderated the Greenwich League of Women Voters’ Fourth Annual Harvard Case Discussion. In honor of the League’s centenary celebration, the night’s topic was the long struggle for women’s rights, from the suffrage movement to the fight over the Equal Rights Amendment. The event was co-sponsored by the Greenwich Historical Society and Greenwich Library.

Two hundred people joined from every region of the country via Zoom; they all read the Harvard case in advance and came prepared to answer questions and participate in a broad-ranging discussion about this important episode in American democracy.

For the first time this year, Sacred Heart Greenwich also sent a group of students to participate, although SHG Global Scholars Director, Judy Scinto, has been involved with the project since 2018. She remarked, “As someone who was taught using the case method in grad school, I know it’s a tall order because the material is demanding. But it was so exciting to see how well all our students prepared and met the moment. They learned so much about the role of women’s voices within the context of the ERA, and I was very proud of their ability to jump into a high-level and engaging dialogue.”
