Discover why twenty young women who came together to share stories for ten weeks ended up meeting for two years, and listen to the wisdom of these girls who had the courage to speak their truth, and the elders who heard them. Women today in many cultures have more freedom than ever to be anything they want to be. Yet these changing roles present young women with unique challenges in making their transition into womanhood, since many of the social support systems we once took for granted have disintegrated. K. Wind Hughes and Linda Wolf have devoted much of their life work to helping young women find their way and they share that knowledge with you. Hughes comments, "So much of our intimacy has become professionalized. Even the fact that mentoring exists is sad-it evolved from a need to solve the social problem of generations and families that have become separate." (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
