listen to our stories
Stories can conquer fear, can make a heart larger and a mind open and free.

I care about who you are, who you have been, who you want to be. I open myself to you to listen and learn about you. I cherish you, not just my fantasy of who you are, not just who I need you to be, but who you really are... ~Betty Berzon

Stories are a communal currency of humanity. ~Tahir Shah

We must reject not only the stereotypes that others hold of us, but also the stereotypes that we hold of ourselves. ~ Shirley Chisholm

Solidarity between women can be a powerful force of change, and can influence future development in ways favourable not only to women but also to men. ~Nawal El-Saadawi
