04-12-2017 12:00:00 04-12-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York Generation Women Generation Women is a cross-generational storytelling event that amplifies women's voices and creativity. This unique and intimate female symposium, held monthly at Caveat, features representative speakers in their twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, sixties and seventy-and-over presenting short original essays and experiences centered on a given topic. Host and event co-founder Georgia Clark (author of The Regulars and the YA novels She's with the Band and Parched), was moved to create Generation Women following conversations with her mother, Jayne, about the sense that women disappear from public conversation as they get older. Clark was inspired to create a safe and welcoming space where women of all ages could join together to be celebrated, explore their experiences and learn from one another. "We live in a society that simply doesn't value older women," says Clark. "With Generation Women, we've created an event where women can come together to tell their own stories and glean vital and vibrant cross-generational wisdom. Also, we can drink wine. Wine is very important." Generation Women combines the vivacity of a literary salon with the importance of a community meeting where elders and youth exchange shared wisdom. In an aggressively dark political moment, this monthly event showcases the hearts and minds of strong women when we need them most. All are welcome to join and learn. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=260818 Caveat Caveat
