Holding Up Half the Sky: Being a Woman in the North Country

June 27, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us this Saturday for a day at the Tahawus Center in Au Sable Forks to honor North Country women. Rebecca Kelly and Lorraine Duvall have organized this day to share our stories, to provide women and men the awareness that we still need to inspire women to make wise choices in their lives. Rebecca and Lorraine are supported by four Adirondack women: Sandra Weber, Marie Anne Ward, Liza Amirault, and one of the internationally acclaimed Gorilla Girls. Patricia Tidwell, a psychotherapist from New York City lends her expertise on ways to empower women.

We begin at 12:30PM and end at 8PM. Join us for the full or just a part of the program. Preregistration is appreciated. $20 to attend ($10 for students). Contact: or phone (646) 734-7151.
