BENEFITING: 9 QUEENS

THE STORY:

One of the primary goals of the Queens Initiative is to provide women and girls with equal access to chess education. In spite of recent gains made to increase female participation in traditionally male endeavors like mathematics and the sciences, women and girls still remain vastly under-represented in the chess world. According to the United States Chess Federation, women and girls make up less than eight percent of rated chess players in the United States. We not only want to help increase the number of women and girls in chess but, more importantly, we want to use chess as a vehicle to empower women and girls to develop critical thinking, practical and leadership skills through chess. If we can encourage more women and girls to play chess, we can also provide them with valuable opportunities to utilize critical thinking skills and problem solving techniques, regardless of their opponent or situation.
