“As a writer and actor it gives me great pleasure to support the Neo Political Cowgirls in their mission to empower the female perspective and create evocative, important and diverse WORK. I hope the words written in these plays and those spoken in the talkback sessions will resonate and inspire others to speak their truths and come into their own POWER. The world is in a state of immense growth and our hope is that art can help to push the needle on change forward."
