It’s time to tell your story! In honor of our 20th Anniversary, A Fund For Women is collecting your memories and souvenirs from the Women's Movement, 1950-present. We will assemble these stories as we document Madison women's history in book form.
We need your stories. Documenting these moments will enrich others' understanding of our lives and times. We're hosting three public "story capture" sessions. Drop by and share your story with other attendees, while volunteers scan your photos and photograph other mementos.
What personal experience convinced you that you needed to stand up for women's rights?
Was there a woman whom you admired because of her strength in breaking down barriers to women?
What would you like to tell younger women about your journey as a woman?
