“Because ‘courage is contagious‘ and because women everywhere have gutsy stories to share, our work has sparked a movement for women’s empowerment and girls’ empowerment.” – Rivka Solomon

Our That Takes Ovaries events include

  • A pre-event “needs assessment” where we learn from you the issues women and all who identify with female gender are facing in your particular community (e.g. sexual assault, body image issues, eating disorders, etc.). We shape the event according to your needs and issues.
  • A talk/workshop where we ask, “Why lead a bold life, and why should women and girls in particular lead a bold life?”
  • Entertaining dramatic readings of excerpts from our play: Diverse women’s true stories of gutsy and courageous deeds – from playful to political. These dramatic readings are done by women from your community who we coach in advance of the event and who then join us on stage.
  • An open mike: Audience members — women, men and transgender people — spontaneously share stories about times they or the women in their lives acted boldly. Each storyteller receives a chocolate egg wrapped in gold foil, a Golden Ovary Award, for their courage.


Entertaining and participatory, our TTO events raise both women and men’s consciousness, benefiting male and female participants alike.
