Victory for Women

As we talk about our lives to others, we develop our story. Life stories are important oral histories of the ups and downs we’ve had. In this session you will learn about the benefits of telling our stories, and also the roadblocks we might create by the way we share our past experiences. Three panelists will share their stories and the different ways they’ve found to express them – not just verbally, but also through working with others, creating artwork and writing.
