Women Are Rising & Unmasking Their Stories (WAR) was an idea birthed from a theatrical play written in 2012,

"Ladies Night Unmasked," written and produced by Karen Trimuel. In that story, a question is posed to five friends, leading them through a journey of drama, pain, and unmasking to gain the strength to answer the question truthfully. Through the unfolding of their stories, each character would find their strength to heal. Well, unbeknownst to all, the story went well beyond the stage. Patrons would corner the writer afterward and tell her that they felt their stories were being played out on stage, and for some, they too would be led on a journey of self-discovery and self-healing; this would also include the writer. 


The story would become a published book during the pandemic in 2020, and later a movement, which has now become WAR-Women Are Rising & Unmasking Their Stories and Women's Inner-empowerment movement. Now, a group of phenomenal women who choose to love, support, and embrace one another.

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


Our 2023 Third Annual Women's Empowerment Banquet was a huge success!!! We took a poll of the women who attended the event and asked them to provide three words or expressions that described the event, and this is what we received, "It was informative, inviting, and inclusive." "I found it to be friendly, comfortable, and informative." "My takeaways were to love yourself, know you got this, and unleash your strength." "It was inspiring, necessary, and transformational. "Eye-opening, thought-provoking, and inspirational." I could go on and on, but you know everyone enjoyed the event.

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. It was a success because of all of you!!! If you weren't at this year's event, no worries. There is always next year.
