Introductions

A group for graduate women* in linguistics is being formed to combat gender inequities in academia, offer mutual support, and socialize. An initial social / organizing meeting will be at 6 pm on Thursday, September 10. Please contact Clare Sandy if you are not on the mailing list and would like to be. (*We wish to be inclusive of trans and nonbinary people and are open to changing the name of the group to reflect this.)
