Hemingway receives credit as the inventor of the six word story. Whether or not that little story is true, the six-word-story movement is very real and lends itself to reflection and conversation. 

On Wednesday, April 15, Gender at Work will launch The Gender Line, a website that invites you to submit your six-word thought, idea or story on gender, your "gender line". The Gender Line will draw on the tradition of the six-word story to incite conversation on gender. We're inspired by the Race Card Project, Everyday Sexism and other sites like that, and we hope to be part of a movement alongside them.  

The Gender Line will also have a Twitter wall which will show up tweets that are gender lines.Join us by tweeting your six-word lines on gender through April 15.  Use the hashtag #genderline.

will go live on April 15. Do visit and bookmark!
