March is Women’s History Month.
Join in as we celebrate Point Women!
Point Foundation is proud of the LGBTQ women in our community. This March, we’re honoring Women’s History Month by celebrating the achievements of Point Scholars, Alums, and Mentors who are chasing their dreams, creating change, and making history. These women are contributing to our understanding of bisexual women’s unique needs, working to provide resources and support to LGBTQ youth in foster care, and improving every facet of society including the criminal justice system, social work and services, and education.
Donate Now to Support Women Scholars at Point Foundation. Donations made between March 1 and March 8th, International Women’s Day, will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000!
Point celebrates LGBTQ women who have become leaders in their communities and changed the world, despite facing formidable obstacles. When compared to GBTQ men, straight women, and straight men, women in the LGBTQ community are the most likely demographic to be socioeconomically disadvantaged, sexually vulnerable, and to experience houselessness at some time in their lives. Despite the odds against them, Women have long been at the forefront of LGBTQ community organizing, political protests, and change-making. We at Point are proud to be supporting the next generation of LGBTQ women leaders. Get to know some below!
