Dumb Martian Activities

In groups we had to do the activities in Pilar’s blog about Dumb Martian. I worked with Sofia and Renata.

Report the following quotes from Dumb Martian.
Say who said what?

“She doesn’t say anything, and she’s stupid.”
Duncan complained of her not saying anything and being stupid.
“Martians aren’t intelligent”
Duncan said that Martians weren’t intelligent
“You’ve never lived here, have you?”
The Agent asked if he had ever lived there
“Put on your space suit.”
Duncan ordered Lellie to put on her space suit
“No, I’ve never enjoyed reading very much.”
Duncan admitted not enjoying reading very much.

1- After analysing the story find an equivalent to Lellie in our days.
2-Do you know about any unfair treatment of women that takes place in our times? Give examples.
3- Design a leaflet with a motion that defends gender equality. The leaflet should leave a positive teaching and it cannot contain any form of discrimination. It should have an attractive design.

1- An equivalent of Lellie in our days would be all women in Saudi Arabia because even though they have recently been given the right to drive, they still have many restrictions.

2- Yes, an example of unfair treatment of women that takes place in our times is the women of the Islam that do not have the complete freedom that they should have, also they aren’t respected as they deserve.




Gender equality is a human fight, not a female one. by vpernarcic
