SisterStories is a web platform that celebrates the tenacity of the female spirit by providing young women with a positive environment where they can share stories of facing, and rising to the challenges of every day life. We aim to ensure that any woman can tell, with pride, her story of tenacity and strength. We welcome stories by girls and young women, which fall under the broad subject of Still I Rise – how girls make choices to overcome the obstacles in their daily lives. These stories can be up to 1,000 words in length, or in the form of a multimedia project, such as a collage, drawing, photo essay, video, song, etc. Through positive storytelling, we hope to shine light on women’s every day victories.
