Change starts from within. Women need the confidence to lead and the opportunity to be considered for positions of power.
Lots to discuss in this week's show! First up, short takes on new and upc...
As I watched Lady Gaga give heart and soul as she sang "Until It Happens to You," at the Academy Awards last Sunday, tears flowed. The brave survivors joined her onstage as a united front to say "You are not alone." What a powerful moment.
What is most important in jumpstarting the creative mind is changing the pattern of behavior that we experience every day. The mind needs to be taken out of this routine, and allowed to be free to explore another path.
How can we work with lawmakers to advocate for policies that protect battered women? Based on Sunday night's Academy Awards, consider this option: Make a movie.
