Communitarianism First published Thu Oct 4, 2001; substantive revision Wed Jan 25, 2012 Modern-day communitarianism began in the upper reaches of Anglo-American academia in the form of a critical reaction to John Rawls' landmark 1971 book A Theory of Justice (Rawls 1971). Drawing primarily upon the insights of Aristotle and Hegel, political philosophers such as Alasdair MacIntyre, Michael Sandel, Charles Taylor and Michael Walzer disputed Rawls' assumption that the principal task of government is to secure and distribute fairly the liberties and economic resources individuals need to lead freely chosen lives. These critics of liberal theory never did identify themselves with the communitarian movement (the communitarian label was pinned on them by others, usually critics),[1] much less offer a grand communitarian theory as a systematic alternative to liberalism.

Girls' Education In this lesson, students will explore the importance of educating girls and examine the barriers that keep girls out of school—all the while learning to become advocates for education.Studying the girls' education movement can shine a recent, relevant perspective on a range of issues covered in U.S. History, including women's suffrage and gender studies. Such study also provides an opportunity for students to learn about women's rights leaders like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Clara Barton and Eleanor Roosevelt.This lesson uses the story of gender rights activist Malala Yousafzai. On October 9, 2012, Malala was riding the school bus home when Taliban militiamen shot her. Malala was already a well-known advocate for girls' education in Pakistan, which has one of the worlds' lowest rates of school enrollment for girls. Malala survived the cold-blooded attack and has continued to advocate heroically for her fellow countrywomen and girls around the world.
