Monday, March 8th is International Women’s Day, a day meant to celebrate the women’s rights movement and the growing progress women from all over the world have made to close the gender gap. The TJ community is a part of this movement, having received the AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science. In addition, TJ is full of women-oriented clubs and organizations like Coding Lady Colonials, WEAR, and WISE, taking their own steps to promote gender equality. By creating opportunities for young girls, these organizations are working to open the door to a bright future for all women.
