  • Welcome to the EdTechWomen Meet Up!

    We are a networked community for women's leadership in

    education technology. We are business experts, technologists,

    designers, and educators working to support the development of

    women's leadership capacity and opportunity in education


    Our mission is to increase the leadership capacity of women in

    education technology through inclusivity, visibility, and impact.

    This is our annual facilitated networking discussion at SXSWedu!

  • Two Things to Share:

    Sehreen, Ayla, and Baby Azali EdTechWomen Tokyo Chapter

  • Last year we talked about what equality looks like for women in our industry.

    A year later, regardless of where you stand politically, to achieve that equality, intersectionality in the womens rights movement can no longer be ignored.

  • Today we are going to talk about that intersectionality.

    "Intersectionality simply means that there are lots of

    different parts to our womanhood, and those parts

    race, gender, sexuality, and religion, and ability are not

    incidental or auxiliary. They matter politically."

    Brittney Cooper, Rutgers University



  • Today we are going to talk about intersectionality.

    An intersectional feminist movement ensures that the cries of all women are

    heard and that their demands are met. It recognizes that the oppression of

    women is not solely rooted in sexism but all types of isms. For example black

    women face unique challenges pertaining to their race and gender that white

    women do not face. LGBTQIA identifying women face different challenges than

    straight women. Women who encompass more than one identity face

    increased oppression.

    Chloe Martin, Syracuse University

    on Kimberl Crenshaw, UCLA / Columbia Law
