This article explores a collection of gender narratives and discourses produced by ordinary women for the Women and Family page in the United Daily News. Through observations, interviews, and discourse analysis, this study shows that the narratives, which are based on participation and self-disclosure, are constructed on sharing and equality, and that the women writers tend to inspire empathy and supportive dialogues among each other. Through self-narration and self-evaluation, these women allow themselves to construct discourses on the female roles that they play.
