Open the Gates!

  • by

The logo on this site has changed to use Marty Folsom’s design for the Open the Gates theme. The theme and logo were launched at the meeting in July.

Branches and members are challenged to Open the Gates

  • Remove barriers to equity and education for all women and girls
  • Improve access to education as the gateway to women’s economic security
