Now in its 6th year, She Talks brings you the stories of remarkable women and their personal journeys in this intimate night of conversation, laughter and inspiration, hosted by Lynn Spence.

In their own words, they will share the authentic stories of how their life’s journey has unfolded. Sometimes emotional, sometimes hilarious and always empowering, She Talks takes the audience behind the lives of some of the most inspirational women you will ever meet.

Join us for this unforgettable fundraising event in support of  YWCA Cambridge’s work with cis and trans women and girls and non-binary and two-spirit individuals in our community.


My Story →
"Silence doesn't help a woman get rid of violence, it only empowers the perpetrator. I never remain silent in the face of injustices."


My Story →
"A tough skin and a strong support system are the most important things you can have in your life."


My Story →
"I think the world needs a reminder more often that 99% of people are good. We need less bad news and more heroes."


My Story →
"I’ve learned that it’s important to ask people who’ve experienced domestic violence what justice looks like for them and what they need to be able to heal. We should not assume what someone else needs or wants."
