It's the anniversary show!
Hi everyone! As you may have heard, we're turning one-year-old preeeetty soon. To celebrate, we decided to have a "Best Of" show, and invite some of our favorite storytellers back onto the Generation Women stage. These stories made us laugh, cry, question everything, and regret nothing. We can't believe how lucky we've been to have these women grace our stage at all, and we're excited to give you all the chance to experience their stories once more.
