Project contributor and photojournalist Danielle Villasana will describe her process reporting on the story of one transgender woman's journey from Honduras to Mexico, review the process of developing "Women on the Move" with the support of seven other photojournalists, and engage in a Q&A with participants.

Pulitzer Center education staff will then present lessons and activities that can be used to engage students in the project resources, and other underreported news stories about the experiences of women worldwide.
