Original Women’s Narratives (OWN)

Storytelling is a powerful medium. It allows the expression, connection, and processing of shared - and new - experiences. It is our stories that connect us and giving voice to those stories allows us to heal.

OWN was created as a platform to reflect and include the experiences of Cal Poly womxn as holistic individuals, written by and for self-identified womxn students.
