It’s our time to speak up.

For too long, women have endured a pervasive culture of misogyny and harassment in the workplace. Made to feel small, insignificant, and unsafe. Told to know their place. But now is our time to speak up. Tell our stories. Share our truths. It's time to declare, "No, my place."
