Generation Women

Presented by Generation Women

Generation Women is a cross-generational storytelling night in New York City.

Each month, five women of note read an original piece on a theme. Of those women, one is in her 20s, her 30s, her 40s, her 50s, and her 60s+. Generation Women celebrates and amplifies women’s voices and creativity. Our diverse line-ups will make you laugh, cry, and think. We're a unique, intimate female literary salon that brings together women of all ages. Hosted by Georgia Clark. More at generationwomen.us
