It looked for a short while like my journey had stalled – work commitments and extensive travel mean time has been in short supply in recent months and I was beginning to feel like Voices From the Well was more of a fantasy project – an ideal – than something that could take off and thrive in the real world. Then I met five women who shared their stories with me and reminded me why I am doing this.
