As Women's History Month comes to a close, we're thinking of all the ways we can continue to celebrate, amplify, and educate ourselves on the amazing work being done by female creators and leaders within SCT, local to Seattle, and all over the world.
Share these resources with your family, friends, and fellow parents! Do you have a resource you would like to share or a female creator you would like to celebrate? Leave a comment below and we will add to our list!
