Clearing Pathways towards Women’s Freedom: Education is knowledge. Knowledge is power!
Our goal is to create pathways to a college degree at a fraction of the price of what traditional colleges offer. WomenX provides free college courses when and where women need it.
The She-Session could negatively impact the progress women have made unless we find ways to provide pathways for women to continue their education.
WomenX is reimagining college education for today's women. College was designed in the 1600's to educate men and in the 1800's to educate women to be good wives.
Since, women have made progress. Women make up 50% of the college population, but this comes at a cost. Women hold about 2/3 of the US student loan debt, amounting to $929 billion.
Even before coronavirus, the gender wage gap made it harder for women to repay their student loans. AAUW’s 2020 analysis also revealed that:
- Black women finish their undergraduate education with more debt than other women.
- First-generation college students face more debt by the time they graduate.
- Women who attended for-profit colleges owe far more money than those who attended public or private non-profit schools.
WomenX designs college level courses from the women's lens. We curate the best massive open online courses (MOOC's), offer synchronous online learning in small cohorts of 7-10 women from all over the country and world.
Intersectional perspectives and deep learning are core to every class that we offer.
Why should you care? Educating women is not just an essential good for our country; educating women is critical to the economy and the world. Gender disparity in the form of unequal wages, glass ceilings, inadequate maternity and childcare policies, suffocating academic debt, and a lack of opportunity to careers in high impact sectors threaten to erode all the gains that we have made. EqualityCan'tWait.
What are we doing about it? Since 2018, WomenX has been on the ground working to build a robust offering of online courses designed for today's women. Since Covid-19 the demands for our courses have soared.
WomenX invests in women, one course, one class at a time.
