Hello, My name is Teresa and I am a teacher at Deming High School of gifted and talented students. Deming, New Mexico is located thirty miles north of Mexico's border, and it is an economically depressed rural area in which students have few opportunities to experience the world at large. Deming is known for having the highest teen pregnancy rate in the state and New Mexico tops the nation. This statistic not only effects the future of females, but males a like. So, I plan on teaching a unit dealing with women's issues, specifically "women in the workplace." I am looking for educational material, books, videos, pamphlets, posters, pictures . . . anything that can be purchased at a very low cost, or is free!! Thank you for you assistance. Teresa

Thanks for your note to feminist.com and for taking action against the high teenage pregnancy rate that your community is experiencing. Some of the best material I have seen on the subject comes from Planned Parenthood of New York City. I suggest that you contact them for more information. If, after learning more about this, you still need more information, please let me know and I'll see what else I can come up with - thanks and good luck.
