    There is added depth when we, as a society and as individuals, can move beyond stereotypes ... to be recognized and accepted as part of one community of full, multidimensional human beings. — Joan Dao 
  • The Fluidity of Identity

    A few of our essays this month offer intimate looks at the categorization of gender. Several stories delve into the restrictions we place based solely on the borders of country and ethnicity.

  • MWP Conversation: Healing in Community
    The MWP Conversations series is about using the power of women to shift narratives and effect change. At our January 15 event, we bring together personal storytellers and women trained in mental health fields to offer insights into how trauma impacts all of us — and solutions that deserve support. How does healing happen with all of us, not simply those who have been directly traumatized?
