“Contemporary culture has fallen in love again with storytelling. And women’s stories, in their beauty and complexity, have the power to shape minds and shift views.”
This quote appears at the beginning of the introduction to Her Own Accord: American Women on Identity, Culture, and Community. Written by K. Sujata, President of the Chicago Foundation for Women, this introduction explores the power and importance of women’s stories. In this video, K. Sujata and April Callen, Manager of Communications at the Chicago Foundation for Women, not only read from the introduction to Her Own Accord, but also share their stories with us.
Our stories define us, and, often, they beg to be told. So how are you sharing yours? Use #HerVoice to tell us.
