Encouragement. Support. Challenges. Growth Women Voices Matter! WE are the women who are creating messages, defining problems and solutions, shaping how things get done. Working as a group, we can cheer the gesture of our solidarity, but it is also heartbreaking about its necessity. Many of us remained silent for years, for decades. But not any more. It is time for me to speak my truth and build my tribe. I will not just be seen, but heard. No one will hush the substance of my voice. “It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.” Madeleine Albright, US Secretary of State, 1997 to 2001 under President Bill Clinton. My mixed media piece represents the unraveling of restrictive bonds which silenced my voice. Hear Me Roar!
