image

There’s nothing quite like driving into the Hollywood Forever Cemetery after dark, under the light of a blindingly bright full moon (or, more precisely, a super blue blood moon). Along with about a hundred other women and allies, I tiptoed around shadowy graves to the Masonic Lodge for the first meeting of The Secret Society of the Sisterhood, a new monthly storytelling event featuring an incredible lineup of iconic, diverse women.
