Herstory

This space salutes Patriots and Pathfinders, the Bold and Unbossed. Their contributions,  celebrated and unknown,  are the stuff of women warriors. Some have joined the ancestors, becoming one. Others, alive and thriving, continue to make their mark today. They’ve toiled in the vineyards of “women’s work”– collaborative, intersectional change agents, sewing common threads of heart and valor.

Thank you Sisters! You light our path and tell our story, giving hope for the ages.
