Women represent half of humanity, yet much of our history remains unknown. This shapes our perception, expectations, and relationships, including the one women have with themselves.
Join us for an engaging conversation about women and the deeper history we share. Panelists, Nicole Evelina, women’s historian and USA Today bestselling author, and Dr. Kathleen Funk, fourth generation indigenous medicine practitioner and founder of Acufunkture, join us for a lively discussion of how our shared history can:
- Forge stronger relationships between women,
- Connects us in unexpected ways, and
- How healing our past helps us live a better herstory and continue forward together.
