“Like a bucket of ice water over your head”

The Colorado Women’s Bar Association recently held a program on grit and success for women in the workplace. We broke into small groups to discuss situations women encounter and how to handle them. As our conversation developed, it became clear that every woman has a story of bias (big or small) that she has encountered–and many of us have many stories. It was also clear that there was power in naming it. The story may be heartbreaking. It may be funny. It may be both. But it’s better when it’s told. So I launched a Tumblr and started asking women to tell their stories. The result is here: Women on the Record.  As Jeena Cho said today, it’s “like a bucket of ice water over your head.”
