Girl Power!

Step inside the lives and stories of some strong and groundbreaking women who have left their mark on Washington, the United States and even the world. Suffragettes, those who fought for women's voting rights, First Ladies, artists, community activists and countless others have influenced culture, politics and the social fabric of this city.

Class meets online
April 23-25, 2021

Friday: 6pm–9pm
Saturday: 10am–1pm
Sunday: 10am–1pm



Your course will consist of a pre-assignment, independent coursework and final assignment as well as live online class sessions with your teacher/other au pairs. Credit for J-1 visa students is 36 hours. Students earning J-1 visa credit must attend all sessions and complete all homework.

You will receive details on how to log in to your online class sessions one day before the start of the course. Once the final online class session has concluded, you will have one week to submit your independent coursework and final assignment to your teacher. Students are required to be present during all live online class sessions. However, your independent coursework can be completed at your leisure before the deadline one week after your online class ends. We wanted to create flexibility in completion as we know many au pairs now have increased work hours due to COVID-19. If you have any questions at this time, please email us at Please continue to stay safe.
