There isn't much I can say about Ms Steinem that hasn't already been said and in much better words. So much of her own writing and speeches will be eternally quotable (see below). For me, one of her funniest and "truthiest" essays of all time has to be "If Men Could Menstruate". Every hypothetical scenario here is so scarily right on that, as we're reading and chuckling, our hearts are sinking.
If you've been following my personal journey somewhat, you know that one of the key drivers is my need to continue to evolve at a very personal and core level. Since 1996, after graduating from university, I've tried to learn one or more new skill each year. This did not start as a fad or a fancy for me. Some background below.
This year's theme is "Make It Happen". So, to women everywhere: first, stand proud and tall for everything that you have achieved so far in the face of resistance and challenges. And, whatever else you have in mind to do, take another step, no matter how small, in that direction today.
