From the March – April 2022 The Outer Circle
on pages 6-7 in the “Dear Grace Column”:
A radio interview aired of a woman member of SAA (name changed for anonymity)
“Some women struggle to feel a sense of hope in a program that currently has, proportionally, a small number of women. They may not see or hear their stories reflected in meetings with mostly, or all, men.”WOC Welcome Letter, Women’s Outreach Committee, May 9, 2021
