From the Gazette-Times:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">A new series on women's health issues is taking place beginning Tuesday in Corvallis. The event is coordinated by student midwife and women's health activist Nechama Wildanah.<br><br>
The first event in the series is "Honoring Our Mothers n An evening of stories celebrating women and birth-giving." Wildanah said participants are encouraged to share their own birth stories and listen to the stories of others.<br><br>
"I am especially hoping that older ladies will come to tell their stories," she said, "and that high school and college-aged women who haven't received much education about birth will attend."<br><br><br>
By sharing personal stories, future mothers have a chance to learn from current mothers.<br><br>
"I feel that birth stories are important, and that women don't always have the opportunity to tell these uniquely female stories," she said. "I believe in storytelling's ability to empower us."<br><br>
Wildanah said she also wants to make reliable information about birth available to women in the community.<br><br>
"I also want to raise consciousness about birth as a political issue and a women's rights issue," she said, "while celebrating all that women are capable of."<br><br>
The event will take place 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, at Westminster House, 101 N.W. 23rd St. Corvallis. Badda Bean is donating tea, and children are welcome to attend with their mothers.<br><br>
The series will take place the last Tuesday of each month. For more information, call 541-991-1038.</td>
