WOMEN ON FIRE: Stories from the Frontlines has a vibrant message to impart to young women today.

FRONTLINES: Stories From The Edge – showcase real narratives and concerns which plague our nation and the world. These stories are painfully familiar.
These issues are humanized by their presence on the stage. Last year, we focused outward to immigration and gun violence. This year, we turn inward and introspective to look at the #MeToo movement and suicide.
Our goal is to open minds and effect change.
These are our stories…
