It was NEVER a dress!

Share Your Story

“We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans – because we can. We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings.” – Maya Angelou

We all have stories; some are memories, some are unfolding right in front of us, and some have yet to be explored. This is a place to share stories of triumphs, indignities, challenges and juxtapositions between the perceptions and realities of what it means to be a woman in any space. We’ll provide you with Prompts, feel free to use them as a springboard, throw them away, or something in between.

Prompt #1

Think of a time and place where you belonged, but didn’t feel welcome. What happened? What did you do? What didn’t you do? What would you do differently today? Write.
