Why would someone who is on television every day possibly need a place to say even more than she already does to viewers? It’s simple. A newscast must be many things to many people. I want this website to be different. I want it to be a place where we can have a genuine conversation about the challenges and triumphs of women and girls.
I feel we have a responsibility to each other – especially to young women – to speak up about critical issues we face…domestic violence, sexualization of girls in the media, sexism, victim blaming and so many other topics. I say “we” because even if you haven’t personally experienced any of these, someone you know has. I mention triumphs too because there are oh so many triumphs to highlight, from female heads of state to teenage girls starting a successful non-profit, to women winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
