Angela Lee Duckworth says that "Grit is sticking with your future day in, day out and not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years." Her research, writing, and presentations on grit and resistance and resiliency have gone viral.  And in the midst of these COVD-19 times we are living, it seems to me that the world needs to hear how women have survived and thrived despite less pay, less respect, the objectification of our bodies, and the many hurdles we have to overcome to achieve what we want while living in this man's world.  What are your stories of grit? Women writers: Join Lyn Jones, Education Outreach Director, at the Center in writing your grit memoirs. Show the world up by telling the world your stories!

This event is held in support of "The Clothesline Indiana" project, led by Women4Change and the Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault.
