The following press announcement came my way from a good friend – please spread the word to anyone you might know in the DC area!

You are invited to join us for the 6th session of FemEx– a course designed for women by women to create a safe environment where women can discuss topics including anatomy, sex & gender; body image; communication; sexual practices; relationships; and more – all issues that impact the way we experience the world. This is an adaptation of a women’s empowerment class that is taught regularly at UC Berkeley, Harvard, and Brown. You can download the Female Experience Syllabus and visit us at for more information- any updates will be posted there and on facebook!

Attending an Info Session is MANDATORY in order to submit a FemEx application. We will offer three info sessions to accommodate different schedules. If you are unable to attend one and would still like to apply, please contact us at All applications are due September 14th.

Any suggestions on a regular meeting location are also welcome.

Please RSVP to if you will attend one of our info sessions so we know how many people to expect.

FemEx strives to build a respectful community in which we challenge ourselves and grow together through the exploration and exchange of our individual experiences of being female — contributing to a larger, collective female experience.
