Moving forward: increasing female leadership in birding

A recent study of 7,505 high school students found that simply discussing the issue of sexism had a measurable positive effect on the problem by making people aware that it existed. Fortuitously, Birder’s Guide had just asked a variety of birders to share their thoughts about women in birding! In this issue of Birder’s Guide to Conservation & Community they reflect on progress so far and–as Rue Mapp eloquently advocated for in last year’s issue–what positive steps forward we birders can take to promote more female leadership in the birding community.
