Event 8 |Sexuality & Consent| Thanks to our sponsors @cottonandreed @tolimolidc |Portrait 13/19] @cethemoon|"It's been a very beautiful experience to just sit amongst other women with different backgrounds, different nationalities, and cultures. To hear things that I wasn't aware of, hearing things that I am aware of, hearing things that I can relate to and things that have opened my perspective. I'm very grateful for this event, it's all about uplifting. I'm grateful for the opportunity to share space and time with these incredible individuals. I'm all about women owning themselves. We are sexual beings... we're not just sex, but we need to own it. We need to own this beautiful thing that is a part of us. Things that stood out to me were women talking about certain things that were pretty unfortunate, but how they have overcome it or how they're currently overcoming it. The fact that they're here tonight and talking about it out loud - I don't know if some of them realized that was a big step - but it definitely is. I'm very fortunate to be a part of tonight and I hope it happens again. I hope this is a continued series and well... yeah GIRL POWER, WOMAN POWER!" .
Thank you to @reallyfarrah of @dimsumdc for reaching out to host this event and @sim1ontharun of @tolimolidc. Not only does she make snack time sweeter, but she brings her love to our community through leading tough discussions like the one we had that evening. A percentage of the proceeds went to DVRP (domestic violence group for Asian/Pacific Islanders in DC).
