Let Us Be Women Who LISTEN


What does it mean when we are women who listen?

For me, it means not quite closing the door on a very powerful series of posts from women on the margins and in our midst—if you missed any of the posts from our WE ARE THE OTHER series, here’s an opportunity to catch up. This month’s zine is all about those posts and that’s it.  It seems only right that we set aside our usual routine to make space for OTHERS. Right?

And just like Saskia wrote in her post yesterday, maybe we can learn to celebrate our differences in a creative new ways—like lifting these OTHER voices and learning to LISTEN.

I’m more likely to answer to Sars than Sarah. That’s because years ago my brothers started calling me Sars and, as the name implies, it was infectious. I’m a self-proclaimed writer-photographer-Jesuslover-painter-adventurer-foodie. I have a near obsession with ending injustice and I’m a sucker for a good cause. I blog about life and building a tiny house at sometimesscreaminghelps.com.
