Re: Women in Quizbowl 2017 Edition

I am a woman who does quizbowl in Britain, so I thought I would add a perspective from this side of the pond. Women and non-binary people are in the minority in British quizbowl as in the US. The community is small and friendly, and certainly I have never felt unwelcome at any tournament or event, o...
