What About My Words?

For Inspire Me Thursday - "Storyteller".

This prompt had me thinking about women and our histories, the difficulties to tell those stories in our own words, since there has always been and always seem to be Someone Else to tell them - or ignore them. Also inspired by the Dixie Chicks documentary "Shut Up and Sing"
