No Stereotypes Here

Profiling Autistic Women

Posted on: September 10, 2010

Last month, I wrote about how the Autism Women’s Network is participating in the Pepsi Refresh Project in order to get the $50K grant. This grant goes towards hosting workshops across the United States for autistic females to be able to access accommodations and supports in their communities. The money also goes towards legal fees to secure the AWN’s non-profit status, as well as site maintenance.

Sadly, the Autism Women’s Network was unable to get into the top 10 positions needed to be awarded the grant. However, we were able to make the top 100 and carry over into this month.

As a result, we have decided to help promote our cause this month by profiling autistic females. Each day, strong, courageous, creative and unique females with Autism tell their stories and share with us their personal experiences and perspectives of themselves and about Autism.

Please join us as we discover what it’s like to be female and autistic.
