I will not be afraid of women

August 15, 2011
Our job is not to make young women grateful,

but to make them ungrateful so they keep going.

Gratitude never radicalized anybody.

– Susan B. Anthony.

Have we come a long way, baby?

Watch HBO tonight for Gloria Steinem: In Her Own Words. Tonight. 9pm Eastern.

You’ve noticed the state of media today, right? Boring or sensationalized news. Insipid films. Ugh. Dullsville. Little smart or interesting content. Pandering to the lowest common denominator.

I was lucky enough to hear the president of the Women’s Media Center speak at BlogHer11 last week. Carol Jenkins is a writer and producer, and also an Emmy award winning former television anchor and correspondent.

She used this video clip in her presentation. It speaks for itself.

Oh, and do watch HBO if you can tonight. If you don’t subscribe, call a friend who does, and join her.

    So important for us all to remember
    what we have worked for and to continue to work for women’s rights. I see so much of how we are not treated equal by being older and listening to both men and women daily in my profession.
    We are wounded in ways we sometimes don’t realize. Women are brave and quite wonderful. What would life be without women friends!
