In our lesson, we introduced 2 photographs of female construction workers, One provides a more objectified look and the other shows a more realistic portrayal of a woman in the role. We discussed the implications of these photographs. Audrey Park, one of our guest volunteers, added some great points for our girls to hear. We talked about the role of women, how society looks at women, and if it is possible to be beautiful and successful at the same time.
After our lesson, we did some vocal work. Audrey led us in some vocal warm-ups and we tried our best to keep it together without laughing. Some of our students have not done many of these exercises which suggest to us that it is all the more important to help them develop their sense of maturity and confidence.
