“If Women Waited for the Invitation, Women Still Wouldn’t Have the Right to Vote”

When women reach a certain age, we are expected to step back, melt into the wallpaper, and be invisible. We might be tempted to do just that since the odds to succeed in voicing ourselves and making a difference in this world sometimes seems to be stacked against us.

Not necessarily so. We have to work for it, true, but it is not an insurmountable feat.

Watch this Ted Talk and be encouraged.

  1. Wow. Thanks for sharing this, Lori. I need to pass it on to a few coworkers, including one who gets frustrated about people discussing projects she’s working on within earshot but not inviting her to participate, even though it involves her role in it. They’re rude for doing it, and I’ve been trying to gently convince her to jump right in instead of stewing quietly about it. This might be a good reinforcement.
