Culture Dose: Female Voices in the Spotlight

Together Live showcases strong women coming together. 

If you ask us, we could all use some inspiration right about now. That’s why we’re especially grateful for fearless women who seem to be leading the way—with wisdom, passion, grace and a whole lot of spunk.

Together Live, an annual speaking tour that features diverse, female voices, kicks off again this September and makes stops in 10 cities across the U.S. This year, Seattle’s lucky enough to make the roster, hosting an uplifting evening at Paramount Theatre on Thursday, September 21.

Created by Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, the head of the Worldwide Book Department at WME and the woman behind authors like Oprah and Arianna Huffington, Together Live “convenes women across all backgrounds and generations to share their raw stories and focus on building community, taking action and finding self-love.”

The tour’s Seattle stop showcases stories from such powerhouses as Glennon Doyle, Luvvie Ajayi, Abby Wambach, Latham Thomas and others. Tickets for Together Live events begin at $25 and take place during after-work hours.

Check out this highlight reel from last year’s gatherings, purchase your ticket for 9/21, and get ready to experience the magic for yourself.

About Corinne Whiting

Corinne, an east coast native who relocated here from the other Washington in 2011, was bit by the travel bug early on. She lived in Strasbourg, France (during her junior year at Georgetown University) and in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she got a masters degree in Cultural Studies. She feels very grateful to have explored incredible spots on our globe ranging from Bolivia and Egypt to Turkey and China, but there are passport pages yet to fill (and travel tales yet to be written!). After serving as associate editor at Where magazine in D.C. for five years, Corinne has embarked on a new adventure here in the PNW as a freelance writer and photographer, contributing to publications like National Geographic Traveler, the Alaska Airlines in-flight magazine, Amtrak's OnTrak, 1889 Washington, 1859 Oregon, Visit Seattle and so on. She loves exploring this incredible corner of the country while debunking the rain myths, upping her coffee quotient, hearing heaps of live music and finding her Zen near the water as often as possible.
