The Persephone Project: Advocate. Amplify. Adore.
Principal Investigator: Dr. Melissa Shew
The Persephone Project’s mission is grounded in the belief that all young people are “thinkerly” creatures filled with intellectual curiosity about themselves, the world, and each other. Yet, women, girls, and those who identify as gender nonconforming have been widely excluded from the history of intellectual life and are still excluded today. The Persephone Project aims to help remedy that situation.
