Women's Studies

  • Women Who Made History


    Cypress Bay High School is proud to debut a new course to our Social Studies Department curriculum. This new course, "Women's Studies," content will focus on the historical development of women in various cultures, women's role in shaping history, and contemporary issues that impact women's lives in American History, World History, Geography, Humanities, Civics, and Government.

    The history of women worldwide is filled with stories of influential and powerful women who sacrificed to contribute significant achievements to better humanity, society, culture, and progress in communities worldwide. This course will highlight some of those stories, recognizing contributions, celebrating successes, and adding to the rich history of achievements that our society benefits from today.

    So, join us in the exploration and celebration of learning about women across the globe to have a genuine appreciation of the strength and determination of women who sacrificed to make not just the United States but this world a better place.
