Women Without Men
We Are Not Princesses
Dear Skyline Community,
As organizers of the Sharing HerStories event, we would like to inform you that in an effort to make our HerStory space more inclusive and accessible to all, we have decided to offer this space in an asynchronous, online format. We acknowledge students are taking midterms this week and all of us are preparing to go into Spring break next week. We also realize that there are many stories that need to be told and heard and an hour and a half event will not suffice.
Sharing HerStories is about celebrating the feminine and we invite stories from everyone who prides themselves for their feminism and femininity, feels an affinity for the feminine, or is inspired by strong feminine influences in their lives.
We encourage you to share your stories in a variety of digital-friendly formats - text, video, and audio - that we will link or upload to Celebrating the Feminine: HerStories. Although not a requirement, we welcome you to provide us with a short bio along with your stories. If a poem or image captures your stories better, please feel free to share it with us along with a brief explanation about how the selected piece relates to your story. Please send your stories to Pia Walawalkar <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Rob Williams <email@example.com>. We will add them to Skyline Community HerStories.
We hope that this change in event format will serve to create an open and inclusive environment for all. We look forward to receiving your herstories.
