About the event

About Women's Circle: It is a place where we gather, discover, and integrate ways of speaking, listening, and relating to others. And serve the women we are becoming. All women deserve a voice, all women deserve to be believed in, and all women want to know that “they are not alone.”  Women are involved in all parts of society, but some matters affect and touch women more than others. From the power of the women's vote to reproductive rights and the pay gap, let's take a look at a few of the major issues that modern women face and how we can advocate for these issues.

For Nov we are offering a mini session of Diana Patton on how to become a Rise Advocates,
