Wf1’s Truthteller Tour

Transforming our lives and communities,
one story at a time

it’s time for women

to own our voices

Imagine a world where women are united in their struggles and their triumphs, a world in which we have safe and brave spaces to share our stories, to laugh and cry together, to transform together.

We can do this by courageously sharing our stories, listening to one another’s, and offering each other support and sisterhood.

Join Women For One, alongside other changemakers in your community, for the Truthteller Tour.
A Truthteller Tour is an empowering event of celebrating and giving voice to our experiences: stories of triumph, devastating loss, and everything in between. Through sharing, we all find common ground, hope, meaning, and inspiration toward action.


THE BIRTH OF THE Truthteller Tour

We all have a unique story to share. As women, our lives encompass so much more than oppression and abuse. They also contain the resiliency, beauty, courage, and light of our spirits.

While the current atmosphere around bringing women’s stories of abuse and violation into the public eye is tremendous, we at Wf1 advocate for the diversity of our experiences: from the quiet epiphanies and moments of wonder to the major breakthroughs that come from experiences like divorce, moving to a new country, finding your purpose, and using your power for the greater good.

The Truthteller Tour stemmed from the desire that women have for genuine, in-person connection. While the power of the written word is the foundation of Wf1, the experience of speaking our stories out loud while looking into each other’s eyes is even stronger. It makes us feel more connected and less alone. It inspires us to take the kind of action that transforms our lives and communities for the better.

Truthteller Tour love

“It was the opportunity of a lifetime to share my story live. People still come up to me on the street to say my words made a difference to them. Kelly McNelis and Women For ONe held a safe, beautiful space and hosted a kickass evening with inspirational women. I firmly believe that storytelling is the way forwards to create a powerful new story for women everywhere.”

Susie Rinehart, Founder of

“I was honored to be a panelist in Kelly’s inaugural Truthteller Tour in my hometown of Boulder, CO. The entire evening was professional, intimate, edgy, and real—thanks to the authenticity and enthusiasm of everyone involved, especially Kelly. I know that these gatherings will continue to heal and inspire so many!” 

Sara Avant Stover, Bestselling Author and Founder of The Way of the Happy Woman

“The Truthteller Tour is one of those surprise events that you attend for one reason and you leave realizing that you needed it for so many other reasons! I was lucky to be one of the inaugural Truthteller speakers, and I took it to heart. I shared my truth about my long history with alcohol and the grip it held on me for decades. It was difficult and emotional to go public with something so private. But I can tell you this: Once you release a truth that has held you back for a long time, the result is nothing short of liberating.” 

Nicole DeBoom, Founder and CEO of Skirt Sports, Inc.

“It’s so rare in our society that we are encouraged to show up and share our stories in all our authentic glory. Kelly and the Women For One team have made this possible via the Truthteller Tour, cultivating safe events to inspire and be inspired. Speaking our truth can be so difficult, and I celebrate those who make it easier for people.” 

Erin Weed, Founder of Evoso

“This was such an amazing event, Kelly. I am so humbled to have been a part of it. Thank you for what you’re creating and sharing in the world. You are literally changing it.” 

Grace Presley, Founder of You Are a Story Worth Loving

“Being a Truthteller on stage was an incredible experience for me. I expected to feel emotional while I was reading my story, but what I wasn’t expecting was the incredible connectedness I felt with every woman in that room. It was more than support; it was like we were all sharing the same story together. The entire experience was not just cathartic; it was transformative and almost mystical. I highly recommend this for all women! Tell your stories—it will change not just you but the world around you, too.” 

Clare O’Nan, L.Ac., O.M.D.

“Finally speaking my truth was an amazing experience. I’ve never shared the story of my abusive boyfriend in public. I didn’t realize how emotional it would be to actually stand up and tell the story. To be in such a supportive setting and to be able to use my situation to inspire others was truly life-changing. I finally realize that what happened to me empowered me to be stronger and can empower other women to be stronger and happier in their relationships.”

Holly Hurd, Founder of VentureMom
