Join the femex community

femex is a class where participants have the opportunity to learn and grow by sharing their lived experiences. femex classes strive to be a safe and intentional environment where we can discuss topics including power & privilege, gender, consent, body image, communication, sexual practices, relationships, and more – all issues that impact the way we experience the world. We have held femex in the DC community since 2009 and have reached over 600 folks in the area. femex is a space for women, genderqueer, trans folks, and people of other gender identities.

Attend an Info Session

The best way to learn more before applying is to attend an information session. 

During all info sessions, facilitators will go over important dates, review the course syllabus and answer any questions you have about the class. You will also get to meet past participants who will share their experiences.
