Unless she did something very incredible (or very, very bad) most women don't get named in history. HerStry wants to rewrite the narrative and put women’s stories front and center. Since 2015 we have collected hundreds of stories from women all over the world. Stories about love, loss, motherhood, friendship, and so much more. We all have something to say, and we all have experiences worth sharing. HerStry wants to get every woman writing, talking, and sharing her story.
