The Equity Team is about a collective effort to uplift difference for me. My research and teaching about gender and sexuality in education, and specifically about the complexities of curriculum in all-girls schools, matters most when the knowledge is used meaningfully towards gender equity, justice, and inclusion. Being a member of The Equity Team is important to me as an opportunity to put gender theory into action in the service of Walker’s and the girls who attend.  I have had the honor of serving as the Scholar-in-Residence for Kansas City Girls Preparatory Academy, a new public all-girls school, where we navigate the slippery terrain of theory in practice together towards increased educational access for girls. Being a member of The Equity Team advances a commitment to equity that started in my first job out of college as a teacher and Teach For America corps member in Compton, California, and has continued to the last page of my recent book, Girls, Single-Sex Schools and Postfeminist Fantasies (Routledge).
