How will you become involved?
We all want to be good citizens, but we know every woman's circumstance is unique. MWEG offers every member the opportunity to make a difference in a way that works with her life, her schedule, and her desire. Offer whatever you can, and we will magnify your impact. Working together we are a force for good.
Where to Start
It’s not that she’s been silent until now,
though those who haven’t trained themselves to hear
the creak of mountains, work of wind, might sometimes claim
she hasn’t had a voice. It’s that she knows
the power of slow growth, of listening.
Now, as she turns her mind towards the world,
she’ll teach it what she’s learned, a better strength:
the strength of sea that, rising, can’t be caught
or kept restrained; the strength of milk and sun
and ink; the strength of those she’s raised to speak
the truth--the children who will match her stride
into the world and build it better. Now
her voice will not be hushed; this wind is fierce.
It winnows, working mysteries in the world.
There’s power in a truthful woman’s voice.
- Darlene Young
What do you do when you know you have to do more?
Now that you are here and ready to stay you may feel called to do more. Some women find that easy. Some want to learn from a mentor or with other women. Some may wish to learn new skills, or learn to apply their old skills in a new way. No matter what, it typically includes making life-changing habits. MWEG has communities, courses, and opportunities for you. Learn about a few below.
