Now more than ever, we need to empower the next generation of women as agents of change. That’s why we’re closing out Women’s History Month by celebrating the women, past and present, who’ve paved the way. From women in science to women in public office, we’re sharing their advice and drawing inspiration to work towards a more just and equitable society for all.
Join us and celebrate women’s voices and empowerment throughout the year with a donation to The Representation Project. You’ll help us continue to overcome society’s limiting stereotypes and create a more inclusive and expansive narrative for the next generation. Together, we can ensure that everyone, regardless of gender, race, class, age, religion, sexual orientation, ability, or circumstance can fulfill their human potential.

“Being a parent is a source of joy and challenge and meaning for many humans of all genders. But it’s not the most important job there is. It’s not even technically a job, insofar as it pays no money. It is more like a very demanding volunteer position that you can never, ever get out of. And, as rewarding as that position may be, producing a younger person is not necessarily the main contribution people make to the world. People can probably not tell you how many children Harriet Tubman or Marie Curie or Elizabeth Cady Stanton had, but they can, hopefully, tell you what they did…” – Harper’s Bazaar
