Wholly Woman: Stepping into Power and Possibility

Wholly Woman: Stepping into Power and Possibility

What does it take for women to claim power unapologetically? In spite of the economic and political gains enjoyed by some women, there remains significant gender disparity in terms of access to opportunity and resources. In addition, women who are comfortable wielding power in public spaces must often contend with broad-based skepticism. Like our forebears, women in the 21st century can still face sharp criticism for “liking power too much.” 

In our time together, we will share stories and practices that help us recognize and resist cultural pressures to accommodate expectations that limit our possibilities. We will also explore growth-fostering practices that enable us to move with intentionality and integrity in all the spaces we inhabit. Co-sponsored by the Fairfax Library Foundation. 

Part three of the Wholly Woman Series
