Hello RWE Members and Colleagues,
Welcome to Research on Women and Education (RWE) SIG of the American Educational Research Association.
Our 44th Annual RWE Fall Conference will be held in San Antonio, TX on October 26-28, 2018. The theme for our conference this year is Reclaiming Our Time: Disrupting Privilege, Racism and Violence Against Women and Girls.
At each annual meeting, we work to build a sense of collegiality and fellowship among conference participants, presenters, and board members. Our conference follows a format where presentations are based on the different stages of a research project. Some presenters will share completed research while others will share research that is emerging and needing feedback. In a small conference environment, we strive to create a safe environment that supports people in furthering their research and career agenda. We will hold Junior Faculty and Graduate Student Roundtables and invite these people, who are at different stages of their career trajectory, to attend. We advocate that conference participants provide constructive and critical feedback to presenters who are in the beginning stages of their research.
I hope you will actively encourage others to join the SIG and attend our fall conferences. We also have other opportunities for members to engage in the SIG during the year through our activist work with Women Educators and Diversity Task Force (please check out their pages on our website).

The mission of the RWE SIG is to:
- provide a structure within the American Educational Research Association for the promotion of research concerning women and girls in education; and
- provide a mechanism to facilitate communication among researchers and practitioners who are concerned about women and education at the intersection of diverse identities (e.g., race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, culture, language, ability, etc.).
