OUR THEME waS "THE END OF AN ERA"
Generation Women is a cross-generational storytelling night in NYC. Each month, six women of note read an original piece on a theme. Of those women, one is in her 20s, her 30s, her 40s, her 50s, her 60s, and her 70s+. Generation Women celebrates and amplifies women’s voices and creativity. We're a unique, intimate female literary salon that brings together women of all ages.
