HOST: Teach About Women, a nonprofit dedicated to changing the stories we tell about women, gender, and power in classrooms and beyond. To learn more about our initiatives to change policy, change classrooms, and build communities, check out our website: www.TeachAboutWomen.org
Inclusivity Philosophy: We are dedicated to teaching an intersectional approach to gender that celebrates, and explores women's experiences and includes considerations of race, ethnicity, culture, socioeconomic background, family, sexual orientation, disability, and life experience. We accept that women and gender are terms that mean different things at different times to different people and we are open to discussing their usefulness.
