Making a Statement: Chronicling and sharing women's voices to engage today's history makers.
Increasingly women's stories are being shared, but their own distinct voices remain missing or difficult to access.
Desiree Smelcer will host a lively conversation with Pauline Weger and Alicia Williamson, PhD, co-authors of BRAVELY, a curated collection of stories and sourced quotations from trailblazing American women representing history through today.We'll discuss why capturing women's own words is vital to changing national conversations, how overlooked voices are inspiring today’s up-and-comers, and what makes a quotation resonate with modern audiences. Pauline, a social entrepreneur and inventor, and Alicia, a former university professor of women’s studies, have spent the past five years conducting original research and writing about women’s voices. Their work is published in three books as well as digitally on Quotabelle.com, a patented tech platform they envisioned and created.
This virtual event is sponsored by Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley where Bravely and the companion guided journal are available to purchase.
