The Twin Oaks Women’s Gathering is committed to creating an inclusive community of respect and sisterhood. We strive to welcome and honor all who identify as women in a significant way, regardless of gender assigned at birth.

We ask you to join us in this commitment by upholding the following guidelines for respectful treatment of everyone in our community.

  • Help us maintain an environment that is free from judgment or bullying of any woman based on her race, age, size, ability, education, or perceived gender.
  • We ask that as a community we acknowledge trans women as women and refer to and honor them as such. Our inclusion of all those identified as women is not up for debate within the context of our gathering.
  • We request that you refrain from language that is used to silence and shut down women, such as any term that is derogatory toward trans people, gendered pronouns as deliberate slurs, or calling people TERF. We do not tolerate the use of language used to hurt or silence women of color or different abilities.
  • We ask that you respect our feminine nonbinary participants by using their preferred pronouns while accepting them as members of our community.
  • We encourage you to join us in continuing to educate ourselves and each other about oppressions that affect any women or any part of our community.
