Hello RWE Members and Colleagues,
Welcome to Research on Women and Education (RWE) SIG of the American Educational Research Association.
Please join us at the AERA Annual meeting in NYC on April 12 -16, 2018 at various RWE presentations and/or at our Business Meeting on April 16th from 6:15 - 8:15pm at the New York Marriott Marquis, 4th Floor Gilbert. We have an amazing set of presentations to offer at AERA this year. We have a round table session and paper session that focus on the success of women and girls in STEM; we have two round table sessions that explore different research genres on women and girls of color; we have set up a symposium that showcases the embodiment of diverse learning and educational spaces; and we have paper presentations that examine women's roles in leadership and in higher education. I hope to see you at these different presentations.
The 43rd Annual RWE Fall Conference was held Salt Lake City, UT in October 2017. The Conference Yearbook Agents of Change: Leading as Engaged Scholars and Activist can be found in our Fall Conference tab halfway down the page. Our 44th Annual RWE Fall Conference will be held in San Antonio, TX on October 26-28, 2018. Check out our Fall Conference tab for more information
I hope you will actively encourage others to join the SIG and attend our fall conferences. We also have other opportunities for members to engage in the SIG during the year through our activist work with Women Educators and Diversity Task Force (please check out their pages on our website).

The mission of the RWE SIG is to:
- provide a structure within the American Educational Research Association for the promotion of research concerning women and girls in education; and
- provide a mechanism to facilitate communication among researchers and practitioners who are concerned about women and education at the intersection of diverse identities (e.g., race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, culture, language, ability, etc.).
