REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN.

Mark your calendars! The folks at Crowded Fire Theater are having Jill, our Executive Director, as a special guest after their March 14th performance of REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN.

Revolt

Many thanks to their team for the kind invitation & generosity. We appreciate your support!

Show Description: 

For all the #NastyWomen (or anyone who can say #MeToo) looking for #GirlsLikeUs, wondering why #NeverthelessShePersisted, who want to #AskHerMore: Revolt.

Exhilaratingly wild, fearless and playful, REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN. is feminism at its messy edge. Alice Birch morphs language and explodes boundaries in this darkly comic manifesto exploring the myriad ways women are styled, shaped, and confined to fit society’s expectations, asking us: What happens when we rebel?

Domestic Violence Awareness Month Kick-Off at City Hall

Kicking off Domestic Violence Awareness Month at City Hall yesterday! W.O.M.A.N, Inc. got to speak alongside leaders, advocates, and community members.

 

If folks missed the kick-off, we’d like to share Laura’s (a founding member of our Echando Pa’lante Program) speech about her experience w/ WINC below:
“Hace algunos años , viví una de las peores experiencia de mi vida, que fue la Violencia Doméstica. Viví en carne propia todos los tipos de abuso, desde psicológico, físico, económico, y sexual. Mi vida era un desastre, no encontraba una razón para vivir. Me sentía culpable por haber dejado a mis hijos en México, ya que como otras mujeres emigre a los Estados Unidos en busca de una mejor vida, pero las cosas no eran lo que yo creía. No tuve una, sino 2 relaciones abusivas, y fue hasta que estuve a punto de morir en manos de mi agresor que fue lo que me hizo reaccionar, así fue como llegue a W.O.M.A.N., Inc, aproximadamente en el 2007 y así logre salir adelante. Ya como sobreviviente, forme parte del grupo Echando Pa’lante, el cual me ha dado las herramientas y el entrenamiento necesario para poder ayudar a otras mujeres. Quiero usar esa mala experiencia en cosas positivas y hacerla llegar a muchos lugares. A través del alcance que realizamos, yo soy un ejemplo de que SI SE PUEDE. Ahora soy una persona fuerte, con una alma libre, se decir no a lo que no me gusta, y me quiero a mi misma. W.O.M.A.N., Inc. ha estado a mi lado en los peores momentos de mi vida, pero también en mis logros. Nunca terminaré de agradecer lo que W.O.M.A.N., Inc. ha hecho por mi. GRACIAS!”
