Put together by the Women's Advocacy Project of the Women's Prison Association, this guide is intended to help people who are thinking about sharing personal stories in a public way.

The WAP, a group that trains formerly incarcerated women to advocate for issues that matter to them, writes, "Our experiences give us a unique perspective on public debates. When we speak about our personal experiences, people listen and understand important issues in new ways." The guide explores both benefits and drawbacks to sharing one's personal story in public.
