Event 14: The "S" Word

We realized that a discussion around sexuality is important. Whether we have had good or bad experiences around it, we need to normalize the conversation so we can continue to recognize dangerous signs, unwanted beahviors, or encouraged ones!

Event 13: The Necessity of Serendipity

When gender, class, and race intersect, as women across these planes, where does luck and grit meet? How do we balance the celebration of our achievements with the admission of our privileges in the crafting of our own narrative?

Shyness, awkwardness, intimidation... it al floats to the surface, but thankfully we had a room of curious and open-minded women who were ready to discuss sexuality and "enthusiastic" consent.

Event 7: Sugar, Spice & Everything Woman

We all have our own ideas about what it means to be a woman, a feminist, or a mother. When the world projects its own preconceptions of those roles onto us, do we meet them or challenge them?
