I remember sitting in Dallas, TX, in 2009 at a women's leadership conference listening to Don Knauss, the CEO and President of The Clorox Company. Don shared a story about what led to him becoming a champion for a better corporate America.

It's time to "bring the nag back." It is time we start nagging and don't stop nagging until we get laws changed and we get equality for women once and for all!

"I always felt like Thomas, I always felt like I was on the periphery of all that stuff, and this desire of a wannabe, well, I am an actor, I spent the last 25 years pretending to be somebody else."

We can be romantically involved with, or be children to or parents of people of color, and experience moments of prejudice, and yes, racism. We can have mothers and sisters and wives and daughters -- we can be women -- and fall into sexist patterns of thought and action.

The last great frontier could be women -- our rights over our bodies, safety and income are under assault around the world and across the United States. Except that LGBTQ people, people of color and women aren't three disparate groups.

Sunday Roundup

This week demonstrated the power of shared experiences and having some collective fun -- i.e. virality. It began with social media all atwitter over Patricia Arquette's Oscar speech -- and backstage comments. Next up, the Internet was riveted by The Great Llama Chase -- as the camelids, part of a therapy visit (Emotional Support Llamas?), made a break for it during a bathroom break. Later that same day, the most viral #dress in history had everyone debating: white and gold, or blue and black? If you saw polka dots you should probably see a doctor. The episode culminated with a national teach-in about color and optics. The week ended on a sad note, with the passing of Leonard Nimoy, never wiser than in his Spock-worthy final tweet: "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP." He lived long, and we all prospered from it.

At the very least, you can make a movie next year about white women and gender inequality and have the Oscars rally around you. It is never the same for gay people and people of color, as evidenced by the lack of color in this year's Oscar movies.

Yes, women deserve equal pay. Yes, women need to be able to reach the highest levels of leadership AND be mothers. But young boys, who are being raised by women like me, need to know the exact same things.
