It Takes Courage

I didn’t recognize all the signs. They started so small and built up slowly over time. It wasn’t all bad. A lot of it was really wonderful. The violent episodes were sometimes years apart. That is what made it so hard, so confusing.

Get Involved


Your voice has power and can have an amazing impact in your community. There are many ways you can get involved and make a difference in the lives of women, children, and families on a local level and nationally.



We believe in a community where all women and children have a safe place to live. A place where women have the opportunity to earn a livable wage and families can live free from violence, in peace, and with dignity.

“Probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade” – The New York Times    

“Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving . . . it is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a benediction.” – Variety

Spokane’s International Women’s Day 2018

Now, more than ever, there’s a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity.

Each year, local organizations, individuals, and businesses in Spokane come together to facilitate a celebration of this important day with workshops, a tabling fair, and powerful keynotes speakers.

This year’s theme focuses on the power of your voice. Join us March 10th and “Let Your Voice Be Heard”.
