White House Research on Girls Conference and New Girls Research Portal
On April 28, Re:Gender participated in the first ever White House Research on Girls Conference. This event was a project of the White House Council on Women and Girls and was planned in collaboration with the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford, the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, Girls Inc., Lean In, Girl Scouts, Re:Gender and the Wellesley Centers for Women — founding members of the Girls Research Coalition, which was launched at the conference. Over 100 researchers, policy advocates, business leaders, members of the media and nonprofit executives participated in the conference with leading researchers presenting their work on girls and STEM, girls and leadership, and the sexualization of girls in the media.
During the conference the White House Council on Women and Girls announced the establishment of the Girls Research Portal, a clearinghouse for research on girls to be housed by Re:Gender. This portal will facilitate the sharing of existing research in accessible formats and provide opportunities to suggest topics for additional research.
