Women's Empowerment

“A successful woman, is one who can build a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at her.”

Hey Family,

As a young teen in Rockford, IL, I always wondered what my mother did at the conferences she attended in Washington, DC.  One year, she brought back a t-shirt with the AAUW logo. On it, was a phrase that I have seen throughout the years.  “When women succeed, America succeeds.” So i’m happy to come full circle with Abigail Lewis, Vice President of Leadership Program and Campus Initiatives at AAUW to talk about #StandUpToSexism, the campaign highlighting how everyday sexism affects women in leadership.

Speaking of leadership, that’s exactly what AnnaMarie Horowitz did to channel the launch of Zora and Amelia, an online store selling gender empowering merchandise. I’ll talk to Communications director Kathryn Grant about the site as well as the inspiration behind the launch.

It’s Women’s History Month on Enlighten Me. Equality for women is progress for all.

Tune in every Wednesday from 4-5p ET on WERA-FM 96.7 in Arlington, Va. or check us out online at Facebook.com/EnlightenMeonWERA or on Twitter @EnlightenMeWERA @andreacambron.
