Educators and community leaders looking for ways to approach issues of diversity and stereotypes may be interested in the Muslima Discussion Toolkit. This resource was created as a companion to the online exhibition Muslima: Muslim Women's Art & Voices, which was presented by the International Museum of Women (now part of the Global Fund for Women) in 2013. The Muslima Discussion Toolkit offers a downloadable discussion guide composed of a three-part lesson plan focused on identifying, analyzing, and challenging stereotypes. Each section includes exercises and discussion questions, and the lesson plan integrates selected visual aids from the Muslima virtual exhibition "to help facilitate conversation, better understanding, and actions between diverse communities," - discussion leaders would also need a computer with internet access. The Muslima Discussion Toolkit is suitable for use in classrooms and with adult audiences, and the Muslima exhibition offers a wide range of artwork and thought pieces beyond those used in the discussion, so the entire exhibition is well worth exploring further.
