How does a woman in Cameroon fighting against invasive breast ironing (or flattening) get her voice heard outside her small village? She, like other women fighting against the cultural and political violence in their communities, connects through Portland-based World Pulse. Women from over 190 countries are logging on and telling their stories. Women’s voices will no longer be silenced.
Join World Pulse for a special event in our hometown, Portland, OR, on Wednesday, October 9 at 6:00pm, World Trade Center. Come and hear grassroots women leaders speak out about the issues facing our global community, promote fearless solutions, and accelerate urgently needed change. Support us in breaking the silence.
This event will be hosted by OPB’s Allison Frost, Occasional Think Out Loud Host, and now Back Fence PDX storyteller!
