Women's Way of Ohio-Ky has done so much in this Tri-State area to educate, entertain, and encourage women. They offer a variety of ways to assist women in becoming the best they can be. Some of the ways are for providing funds to help women in specific projects in the arts. They also sponsor a number of events to show off the talents of local artists and entertainers. They work with other feminist groups such as Women Writing for a Change to benefit our community.

Women's Way is awesome. I just love attending their events,especially when they are held at Women Writing in Silverton. They are working to improve the lives of women through shared experiences, evening programs and daytime events and celebrations. I especially enjoy the readings and musical performances. Looking forward to another Swan Day in March.

I never knew if I belonged in a group such as this then I met Bev Bowers and so many others involved with Women's Way. With kindness always at the forefront I have been welcomed into this amazing circle of talented , caring, inspiring, and encouraging women. I've been to many events and have come away with a sense of belonging each and every time. I love the music, the writings, and the art I've been exposed to and/or part of. Thank you Women's Way for being a leader, in so many ways, for so many women.

Womensway is unique in Cincinnati with its mission to support female performing artists and to provide opportunities for women to share their creative talents and ideas. The salons I've gone to have been informative and moving, including this last one with author Heidi Bright sharing her journey of recovery from cancer. Last weekend's holiday concert program was wonderful, once again. It was a joy for me to have been included in the list of poets and performers for the evening, and Krista Detor's music, along with her commentary in between, was both entertaining and deeply resonant, as evidenced by the response of the audience. Womesway introduced this outstanding Indiana singer/songwriter to Cincinnati awhile back, and I'm so glad I got to hear her again!

During my time living in Cincinnati, the Women Way Salon was an important source of support, entertainment and sociability for me and my late partner. I really missed the Salons when I moved to Lexington KY.

There have been many programs I have attended over the years. Salons, movies, lectures, and all were socially interactive, besides being educational. The most recent one was a lecture by Heidi Bright about cancer. It was part her inspiring story, part guest sharing cancer experiences, and part healing methods.

On one occasion, I have the privilege of sharing my story about growing up with mentally ill parents. There was lively participation and good attendance. I love what Women's Way is all about.

They hold many worthwhile events supporting women in the arts. Just participated in The Yearly Holiday Show, was very funny, entertaining and inspiring. They hold a SWAN day to support Women's art, music, writing, etc. Their salons are always interesting and well attended. They do so much for our community.

Moving to Ohio was in large part a disastrous decision for me, but Women's Way made it bearable - so much good music, great company, and uplifting activities - I am forever thankful to Bev Bowers and Women's Way for making sure I made heartfelt connections during my time in Cincinnati. A truly outstanding organization!
