What people are saying after attending a Watchfire
“I absolutely loved the program. It ties together the past, the present, and the future. And being able to read the words, real words written at the time, on both sides of the argument and being able to see that relevance today is important for everyone to remember how far we’ve come,” Kimberly Church, CEO, American Association of University Women (AAUW)
“I wish more young women knew about the program. I learned so much in so little time. And it makes me just proud to be a woman,” Madelyn Scales Harris, Vice Mayor of Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
“It meant a lot for me, being a woman and being a woman of color, it just really covered ever spectrum of what it means to be a woman in America,” – University of Tennessee Martin, undergraduate student
“It was really neat to get to see how much they really went through, because when you read about it in a history textbook the words on a paper, its not the same as seeing a person embody their words and actually hearing someone speak it, it puts you in the moment,” – Middle Tennessee State University, undergraduate student
“I was impressed with the program. A lot of times, history is very one-sided but we heard a lot of voices and experiences that you normally don’t get to hear. I felt it clued me in to what was really going on at the time,” – Matt Ferry, Murfreesboro
