Welcome to March: Women’s History Month. I was trying to find some profound youtube video about the impact women have made in history, but youtube left me wanting. So I started looking around for videos that inspired me as a woman. And because of the political climate’s hostility toward women, I wanted something to bridge the gap.
What I found was a wonderful interview with former Secretary of State Madeline Albright. She’s witty and brilliant (and sassy, which immediately charmed me to her). She has an amazing outlook on being a woman in the United States. Take a look at what she has to say about her experience as Secretary of State as well as her outlook on the importance of women globally.
We often think of women’s history in the past-tense (as history is often found in the past…), but I challenge you to find a woman this week who is making history today. Maybe you’ll find her in the mirror. ~Liz (firstname.lastname@example.org)
If you haven’t visited http://www.ted.com, you are missing out. TED, as their website states:
a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.
They videotape their conference presenters and share it in videos on their site. The idea of sharing knowledge in this way is powerful, and I highly recommend spending some time getting to know their website.
