wp1 cover smIn the call for writings, student writers were encouraged to reflect and to write on the theme of women's health/well-being. The forms could be personal stories, poems, opinion essays, advice, or other forms of writing. Students were invited to cover the broad spectrum of issues related to women's health and well-being: education/literacy, healthcare systems, social issues, specific illnesses, media images, gender-specific issues such as reproductive health, as well as many other topics. A pre-writing activity was made available for both teachers and students.

WE LEARN received 75 writings from students across the United States and Canada. They represented a range of topics and writing proficiency. This collection showcases 55 of those writings. The selection committee chose writings that best represented the theme. They also considered voice, clarity, heart, and writing technique.
