Last week was a dream come true! I had the privilege and pleasure of interviewing Leymah Gbowee – a Nobel Peace Laureate and personal heroine of mine – about her revolutionary activism in Liberia.  Together, we sat down to discuss Leymah’s backstory as an advocate, change-maker, and spokeswoman for peace.

Sisterhood is an expansive, sometimes illusive word. It can sound sentimental to the untrained, over-conditioned ear. Perhaps that word is riddled with real life hurts and disappointments, accumulated over the years.   If we have not felt true sisterhood – and many of us haven’t – there is something fantastical, taboo, maybe even mythical about the...

A free woman is a woman who stands in the middle of a thunderstorm of pain, and bellows “Bring it on!” to her higher power.   A free woman is a woman who grabs her suffering with both hands and rides it like a flying saucer in the snow, down a mountainside. A free woman...
