Women's Rights

In 1848, 300 women and men gathered in Seneca Falls, NY for the inaugural Women's Rights Convention, advertised as a convention to discuss social, civil and religious conditions and the rights of women. Tune in Tuesday at 2 pm for a conversation with the reluctant therapist Elizabeth Barrett  from the Women's Rights National Historic Park in western New York, about the role of history in making the women's marches and #metoo movements possible today.

With so many causes needing our attention, how do we narrow our focus in a way that can really make a difference and prevent the inevitable burnout and overwhelming feelings that often accompany activism? Elizabeth Barrett leads a conversation about one of the keys to sustaining our mental health: service to others. How do we each create our own authentic way of taking action?

Never underestimate the power of women in community. It is when we are united that the quality of life for all - not just women - begins to change. It's important to take the time to recognize and celebrate women, history, amazing accomplishments and the opportunities that lie ahead. Tune in for a conversation with, and about, the not-so-silent majority. Your calls with questions and comments are welcomed and encouraged.

If the millions of marchers who took to the streets on January 21, 2017 are any indication of the breadth of a growing resistance - then this is going to be a wild ride. The key to success will hinge on we, the people, and our ability to dig in for the long haul, remain united and maintain this initial energy and enthusiasm. So where do we go from here? Listen to this conversation with Central Coast listeners about those steps you plan to take, how to stay engaged and what can be expected moving forward.
