From looking at the National Literature Curriculum for GCSEs Students, there are only around 5-10 women's books or poems covered and around 1-3 of POC women's books amongst around 40 books written by old white MEN! Just from those statistics you can see that women's work is  hardly included in the education of secondary school children let alone women of colour. I strongly believe that there should be a more diverse amount of authors taught to us as the UK is although predominantly white it is a hugely diverse country therefore we should be including this population into our education. I am sure that many people will agree with me on this matter. To add on to this, only 3 literature Nobel prizes have been awarded to black people, 1 to a woman, out of 113 awarded literature Nobel prizes. As times have changed and people are becoming more aware of this issue I personally feel that we should also tackle the corrupt education system telling us that great pieces of work are written by white men. Thank you to anyone who is open minded enough to listen and agrees to sign.
