I was watching the final season of The Oprah Winfrey Show when Oprah looked directly into the camera — what felt like right at me — and said, “Don’t be afraid to cause a ruckus.”

At the time, I was afraid. So there would be no ruckus-raising for me.

Yet.

It was early 2011 and I was suffocating in an abusive marriage to a narcissist who had for over a decade slowly stripped me of my strength.

And my voice.

Once I escaped and began the long and difficult journey of healing, I never forgot what Oprah told me (yes let’s just pretend she was talking to me personally).

I’ll never forget the moment I knew how to put her advice into action when I realized…

My voice is the ruckus.

And I’ve been raising it ever since.

An invitation

As editor-in-chief of The Virago, I know how important a woman’s voice is. Not just to her, but to the world around.
