    Deirdre Morro James

    Deirdre James says devotion to women’s issues gives her a great appreciation for the work of Awesome Women Hub. She credits this interest to her girl’s school experience at the hands of a remarkable group of nuns. Liberal, inherently socialist, woman-centered spirituality was her daily bread. She was molded by a community of women operating successfully for the benefit of the whole, which was to educate the girls of Western North Carolina with the nurturing and love women so naturally supply the world. Aided and abetted by the epic forces of women’s liberation, she is happy to join with Awesome Women Hub. Once a writer and creative director in the advertising world, she is now pursuing work that reflects her own voice and other women's. She is currently co-writing a book on liver disease and transplant with a classmate from her girl’s school days.
