Empowering Women Through Storytelling.


HerStry is...

Writing women back into history.

For too long women have been left out of the history books. Their stories muddled or left untold. It's time to change that.

HerStry invites all women, from every walk of life, to tell their stories. We all have something worth saying.

Get Involved.


Write for Us

Telling your story is a revolutionary act. 

Unless she did something very incredible (or very, very bad) most women don't get named in history.  HerStry wants to rewrite that narrative and put women front and center.

Since 2015 we have collected hundreds of stories from women all across the world. Stories about love, loss, motherhood, friendship, and so much more. We all have something to say, and we all have experiences worth sharing. HerStry wants to get every woman writing, talking, and sharing her story. 


Personal Essays

Our weekly personal essays give writers the chance to tell whatever story she like. Stories can be about anything as long as they are true and about you.


Monthly Theme

 HerStry publishes monthly theme stories during the last week of each month. The themes are announced at the beginning of each month. Essays can be about anything as long as they are based on the theme, are true, and are about you.
