Since gender inequity in education affects not only individuals in question, but also the general population--think of air bags in cars being designed for the standard male size, by males, to the detriment of females/children, it's critical to do whatever is possible to have women educated/prepared to be in decision-making roles in as many situations as possible.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the development of sexual harassment prevention strategies, the review of computer labs and access in schools, and new understandings by parents of what their daughters experience in school that may limit their participation and potential.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
