In partnership with the International Stuttering Association, Stutter Social will be celebrating International Women's Day with three special Hangouts on Air to be live streamed on YouTube on Saturday, March 8, 2014. In honour of the special day, topics will cover the woman's experiences with stuttering.
It is said that 1% of the world's population stutters and 1 in 5 people who stutter are women. The three Hangouts, which will feature a panel of participants, will be facilitated by Stutter Social hosts, Annie Bradberry, Pamela Mertz and Anita Blom. Each of them are prominent leaders in the worldwide stuttering community and have overcome their personal challenges with growing up stuttering.
The Hangouts on Air will be an hour long and will take place at various times throughout the day at the following times:
- 3 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (San Francisco) hosted by Annie Bradberry
- 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (New York) hosted by Pamela Mertz
- 3 p.m. Central European Time (Stockholm, Sweden) hosted by Anita Blom
We’ll be chatting about stuttering experiences among women and fielding questions from viewers. While the Hangouts will only be available to panelists, we invite anyone watching on YouTube to share their questions and comments on the YouTube page, Facebook or Twitter (with the #pwschat hashtag). We hope you can celebrate International Women’s Day with us!
