Recently married I find I am contemplating independence from a woman's standpoint on regular basis. I am fortunate and blessed to live in a country where individual freedoms and life, liberty and the pursuit of all things happy is considered sacred. I am inspired by the courage and spirit I see in women all over the world and am eager to learn about real, individual experiences. My hope and intention is that by being an active listener of women all over the world, hearing their plights and being a witness to their suffering and hope, I will contribute in some small way. I have also known violence and pain and suffering, and am inspired to keep growing in spite of it.
