The Women Are Rising & Unmasking Their Stories (WAR) movement traces its roots back to a theatrical masterpiece, 'Ladies Night Unmasked,' penned and produced by Karen Abbott-Trimuel in 2012. Abbott-Trimuel's work was instrumental in sparking a conversation about women's experiences and the power of storytelling. This play chronicled the journey of five friends, who, in the face of a profound question, embarked on a path of self-confrontation, pain, exposure, and ultimately, self-discovery, healing, and empowerment. 


The play resonated deeply with audiences, with many confessing that they saw their own narratives unfolding on stage. This powerful connection led some to embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing, mirroring the characters' transformative paths. 


Despite the adversities of the pandemic in 2020, a movement was born, and its story was immortalized in a book. In 2021, a group of extraordinary women panelists, with their resilience and strength, shared their stories of trauma and triumph in the first annual Women Are Rising and Unmasking Their Stories Luncheon. This yearly event provides a safe and supportive environment for women to share their personal experiences, connect with others, and inspire one another to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals. It's a powerful and emotional experience that underscores the strength and resilience of women and reinforces the message that when we unite, we can conquer any obstacle.


Today, WAR stands as a beacon of inner empowerment for women, a testament to their choice to support, love, and embrace themselves and others. It is a collective of extraordinary women, united in their decision to share their stories, inspire others, and triumph over their challenges. From the public annual event, a private membership community was formed, Women All Rise (WAR), a space that continues to support and empower women in their journey of self-discovery, healing, and empowerment.

Our Third Annual Women's Empowerment Banquet
Was A Success!!!!


Our Third Annual Women's Empowerment Banquet in 2023 was a massive success, leaving a lasting impact on all who attended! We asked the women to share three words or expressions that best described their experience. Here's a glimpse of what they shared: "Informative, inviting, and inclusive," "Friendly, comfortable, and informative," "Love yourself, know you got this, and unleash your strength were my takeaways," "Inspiring, necessary, and transformational," and "Eye-opening, thought-provoking, and inspirational." The event was a powerful reminder of the strength and resilience of women.

It was an afternoon of inner empowerment for all women. The speakers were phenomenal, and the information they shared was well-received. I want to thank our WAR members, volunteers, sponsors, and guests. The event was a success because of all of you! We're already looking forward to next year's event, and we hope to see you there.
