Felice Davis, Associate Superintendent of Programs at the Washington Corrections Center for Women, shares her secrets, her shame, and her trauma with the audience at the TEDx in Prisons event, "Does Gender Matter" at Washington Corrections Center for Women in March, 2015.

Her authentic courage about her past helps us all understand better how to live without judgement - judgement of ourselves and others.

There are so many people that need those of us that are further in our journey to be open to create a world where a young girl doesn't feel the need to build a separate persona or push her secrets into a suitcase that will inevitably break open.
