“Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History: Challenges Facing The Modern Woman”
"Well-behaved women seldom make history." You may have seen that quote on bumper stickers or t-shirts. After this session you will at least remember that those words are not from Eleanor Roosevelt, Marilyn Monroe, Kim Kardashian, or any other celebrity name that may be given credit.
Whatever your age, your career status, your sexual preference or your income, being a woman in the modern day comes with its own unique set of challenges. For one thing, we seem to be thought of as a collective - one that can be understood by silly how-to guides.
- Developing individualized tools to support the path that will bring greater fulfilment, a sense of purpose and success in whatever endeavors a woman thinks are most important in her life;
- Honoring one’s authentic self, which is fundamental to personal empowerment and the ability to build healthy relationships, both personal and professional;
- The extent to which women hold authority or positions of leadership...
...are just few of challenges to be discussed at this session. It’s a great occasion to commemorate women’s accomplishments. it’s a special celebration of women’s economic, political and social achievements. Every "overcomed" challenge deserves a celebration!
