By Stacey Gualandi/Feb. 3, 2018

A BRAND NEW conversation on The Women’s Eye Radio with host Stacey Gualandi and Sally Colon-Petree, Dream On Productions founder and the director of Women Like Us. Three Journeys. One Mission. To Change the World.

Sally Colon-Petree poster for her documentary Women Like Us/Poster provided by SallyThe self-taught filmmaker has worn many hats – host, actress, singer, and producer – but now she has found her life’s mission: to shed light on what is happening to women around the world.

Her debut documentary, Women Like Us, is a labor of love that took the mother of two girls to Africa and all over the US. She filmed “unimaginable social injustices young women face,” including sex trafficking, female genital mutilation, teen suicide, poverty and bullying. The timing of the film couldn’t be more perfect in the current #MeToo/Times Up climate.

I met Colon-Petree late last year at a Las Vegas screening of Women Like Us I hosted with Deluxe Version Magazine. It was an opportunity to hear her personal journey and to learn what I – and all of us can do – to make a difference for women across the globe.  Now anyone can host these “Empowerment Forums” to promote the film and inspire a call to action.

Listen as Colon-Petree candidly talks to me about her mother’s inspiration; how she overcame trauma; how she “found herself” while filming; and why she went to shoot her next doc in post-Hurricane Maria Puerto Rico.

“I want people to be aware, not to live in fear,” says Colon-Petree.

Be sure to tune in to Stacey’s BRAND NEW interview for The Women’s Eye Radio with Tina Hovsepian (@TinaHovsepian), the inventor of Cardborigami, origami-inspired homeless shelters!

Seeing a need to combat the ever-present homeless problem in Los Angeles, this full-time architect created a solution: a collapsible, transportable cardboard shelter.

In just seven years, it’s the invention that keeps on giving. In addition to helping people get off the streets and back on their feet, Cardboragami shelters are now being used to help those impacted by natural disasters, most recently in Mexico following the devastating earthquake.

NEW INTERVIEW WITH HOST STACEY GUALANDI!

A BRAND NEW conversation on The Women’s Eye Radio with host Stacey Gualandi and Doniece Sandoval, founder of Lava Mae, which brings showers and dignity to the homeless.

After observing an overwhelming number of homeless individuals in San Francisco who were stripped of their dignity without a simple daily shower, Doniece launched Lava Mae almost five years ago, by retrofitting buses into mobile showers. This “radical hospitality” has been transformative in improving services for those less fortunate and changing the face of homelessness in San Francisco.

Her approach to solving an overwhelming problem is catching on in a big way across the country. Lava Mae has branched out to Los Angeles, now offers “Pop-Up Care Villages,” and shows others how to follow her lead with BUILDIT toolkits.

Doniece shares why she went a whole week without showering, who are the people Lava Mae serves, how we can all spread this service to other communities and what it feels like to be called a “superhero” by her daughter.

We are also thrilled to announce that on October 7th, Doniece will be included in a panel including Stacey, as well as author and moderator Laurie McAndish King, at  Book Passage in Corte Madera, CA, as part of the launch of “20 Women Changemakers: Taking Action Around the World.”

NEW INTERVIEW WITH HOST STACEY GUALANDI!

Stacey has a BRAND NEW interview for The Women’s Eye Radio with Laurie McAndish King, the award-winning author of the just released “Your Crocodile Has Arrived: More Stories from a Curious Traveler.”

Never one to pass up a challenge somewhere around the world, Laurie has been a little busy since last we profiled her three years ago with her debut, “Lost, Kidnapped, Eaten Alive: True Stories From a Curious Traveler.” Not only is she an accomplished author and essayist for numerous publications, Laurie has also contributed over a dozen stories for The Women’s Eye site.

“Your Crocodile Has Arrived”

Listen on iTunes

In her first book, she wrote about surviving an accidental marriage to a Maasai warrior in Kenya, coffee made from animal poop in Bali, and a kidnapping in Tunisia. Now she shares the inspiration for her newest memoir: meeting 20-foot earthworms in Australia.

You’ll hear more fascinating tales about “alien spaceship propulsion,” chocolate massages, saving orphaned elephants in Sri Lanka, and, of course, near-extinct giant earthworms.

Laurie gives advice on what to write about, why she hates traveling and what’s on her bucket list. And we’re excited that on October 7th (7pm) at Book Passage in Corte Madera, CA, Laurie will be moderating a panel including Stacey, as well as Lava Mae founder Doniece Sandoval, as part of the launch of “20 Women Changemakers: Taking Action Around the World.”

But don’t worry; she won’t be serving earthworms.
