Super Heroines, Etc.
October 2012 — Present
When I returned to St. Louis from a short stint in Oklahoma, I founded Super Heroines, Etc. as a local grassroots meetup organization. Since then, we've grown to over 1500 members and have hosted over 300 events. I led the charge on forming Super Heroines, Etc. as a non-profit and in November 2014 we received our 501c3 status.
Our mission is to empower women to embrace that inner nerd - whatever that looks like to each person. We have knitters, cosplayers, gamers, writers, and so many more folks in this group! Our events, classes and programs have included everything from book clubs to geocaching to four-week writing workshops.
