Our Mothers' Stories

Do you have a few minutes in your day to chat with your mum or grandma? Our Mothers' Stories is a new project connecting females to their mothers, grandmothers and each other. 

When was the last time you heard a story from your mother or grandmother you'd never been told before? Often we forget to have deeper conversations with the people closest to us. Our Mothers' Stories is a new project aiming to promote conversations and connection, and ultimately unearth new stories from females in our lives. It might be a funny memory, a sad memory, a happy memory – any stories go. The form below is to share the story you uncover from your mother or grandmother. They'll be collated and shared on Womenclan platforms. There's some starter questions that could get a conversation going below:

Questions to get started:

Stories can start anywhere, but sometimes the conversations can be hard to start. Here’s 15 potential questions that might get a conservation going:

 

  1. What is your most beloved childhood memory?

  2. What is something you’re proud of that no one knows you did?

  3. What life lesson did you learn the hard way?

  4. What could you tell me that I would be surprised to learn about you?

  5. What is your happiest memory?

  6. What is your saddest memory?

  7. What small act of kindness were you shown you’ll never forget?

  8. When have you worked hard and loved every minute of it?

  9. What moment in your life challenged you the most? 

  10. What life lessons did you have to experience firsthand before you fully understood them?
