Superheroes exist all around us, disguised as mothers, daughters and friends.
Dangerous Dames is a Storytelling event featuring stories told by empowered women who are working to advocate for themselves and the environment. These women have issued a “call to action”. They are real-life superheroes, speaking-out to break barriers, beat the odds and blaze new trails to make a positive impact in other people’s lives.
