Event description
Join us for a four week talk story series that strives to cultivate safe space and empower women to speak their truths.

About this Event

Waiwai Collective x She Speaks Honolulu Presents

Community Conversation

A four week program that focuses on female voices in our community and the issues that are important to us. She Speaks Honolulu strives to cultivate a safe space that empowers women to share their stories, speak their truths, and draft a narrative that accurately portrays the world we live in.

Each month wāhine will gather and talk story around a particular topic that impacts our place in community as women. At the end of each talk story session there will be a facilitated journal reflection where each participant will draft their narrative. After the facilitated journal session, we will offer space to share those reflections.

At the close of each session the host will share a piece of poetry created in real time from their experience. The final session will close with a female artist feature performance.

OPEN TO WOMEN & THOSE WHO IDENTIFY AS FEMALE

**This is a micro-event with limited capacity. Masks are required and Event Safety & Physical Distancing Protocol will be in place.**

Discussion Topics

January 27 - Session 1: Redefining Feminist | $15

In this session we will discuss the term feminist, breakdown what that means historically, the connection the term has locally/personally, and how we as a community will choose to engage with the idea going forward.

February 24 - Session 2: Feminist and Colorism | $15

This session will center around the role of women of color in the feminist movement. We will take time to unpack what that has looked like historically, how we are and have been impacted locally/personally, and how we as a community will engage in the future.

March 31 - Session 3: WOC in the Workplace | $15

Here we will make space to dissect the intersection of race, sex, and professionalism. We will discuss what the term professional means historically, how it impacts us locally/personally, and what we will do going forward to change the narrative.

April 28 - Session 4: Community Call | $20

Because this is a community space we would like to invite participants to offer suggestions for our final discussion topic. We will use the same general format (history, local/personal impact, future narrative).
