Background: “I had an epiphany,” says Stefani Olsen, founder of DCBiWomen. “I preferred people as opposed to any single gender.” Soon after that, Olsen wanted to find an outlet to talk with other women about her experiences. With no groups in sight Olsen decided to start her own. Two years and hundreds of members later she says, “It’s great realizing I am not alone.”
