WomanSpeak.org facilitates grown-up girl talk by holding space for women going through trauma, transition, and transformation. There is power in telling our stories between women of different generations and life stages. Through story, WomanSpeak.org encourages exploration and dialogue about key components and milestones on the path to healing, including: anger, grief, forgiveness, independence, and rebuilding.

WomanSpeak.org also shares resources for healing and living, like: stress management tips, single parenting and co-parenting, dating and relationships, recommended reading, support groups, helpful professionals, and practical tips for navigating daily life.

Please look around (Herstories is a good place to start) and spread the word to other women in your life who you think could benefit from this story-telling community.

Melissa Gopp is a single mom who works from home as a blogger and freelance writer. You can read herstory here and follow her healing journey on the blog. In addition to working as a writer and editor for a DC-based maternal health nonprofit, Melissa has written for Yoga Journal, The Writer, JaxMomsBlog, and Community Health Forum magazine. She is a beach bum at heart and passionate about using her writing to help women navigate life’s challenges.
