Erin Matson believes that women can change the world -- with a little perseverance.
"I realized fairly early on how easy it is to make change if you are determined and you are willing to be a pain in the ass," Matson said.
She also stressed in the interview that making changes for women, nationally and worldwide, doesn't need to involve big political acts: "I believe that every time a woman tells her own story or tells her truth, it is a radical act. Simply being truthful about your life as a woman is activism."
Matson also wrote about the importance of speaking out as a woman in a September 2012 post on her blog: "You can change so much. Everyone has one voice, exactly one voice. Respect that, and respect your one voice.
