COT March 2023

This March 2023 is Women’s International History month, a time to celebrate women and the countless ways that they have contributed throughout history to society, including through the power of storytelling. Storytelling is an effective and powerful way of communication.

In this special Women’s issue, we are celebrating women storytellers and the lessons they share. Their stories are of journeys taken, rites of passage and lessons learned – authenticity, vulnerability, possibilities and transformations that can heal. Their diverse voices and perspectives are imperative to understanding who we are as women and our place in the world.

The Hill We Climb, written by Amanda Gorman, storyteller and youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history directs our attention to the future. “We will not march back to what was, but move to what shall be: a country that is bruised, but whole; benevolent but bold; fierce and free. We will
not be turned around or interrupted by intimidation,
because we know our inaction and inertia will be the
inheritance of the next generation. Our blunders become
their burdens. But one thing is certain, if we merge mercy with might and might with right; then ‘love’ becomes our legacy and ‘change’ our children’s birthright.”

With continuing appreciation to all the women contributors and our COT team for the enormous effort and gift of time that they contributed to make this special
Women’s issue a reality. Please send email submissions, comments, and feedback to coteditor@communitycenter.org.tw.
