One of the key themes in Anushay’s book is the power of women telling their stories. During her research, Anushay became obsessed with the stories women don’t tell and what we keep to ourselves. One of the most powerful stories she came across in her work is that of Tomeka Isaac who started the nonprofit organization, Jace’s Journey after the loss of son Jace. Isaac’s story embodies the message that when women share our narratives, everything changes. How we view an issue changes. The season finale of Spilling Chai on the Pain Gap is a tribute to women who have the courage to share their experiences with the world to remind all of us that the life of every woman and birthing person’s life counts.
