About Georgina Emerson
Georgina is the founder and director of Teach About Women as well as one of our educational consultants. She holds a BA in History and MA in Comparative Literature from Dartmouth College as well as a degree in History from L’École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales. The focus of Georgina’s work is curriculum design and providing collaborative professional development for K-12 teachers who want to make equity work part of every aspect of school life. She’s interested in the liberatory power of intersectional, anti-bias pedagogy across departments. In the words of bell hooks, “I celebrate teaching that enables transgressions–a movement against and beyond boundaries. It is that movement which makes education a practice of freedom.” In addition to giving workshops, Georgina is currently at work on a book and high school curriculum on the history of women, gender, and power.
