The Girl Effect
This is a great, simple, and not so out of the box idea that will rock our world:
I want to thank my son Andrew, more commonly known as Bad Brilliance, for sending it to me.
When I was the Executive Director of the Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill, the most significant thing that we accomplished , in the wake of the 1995 Beijing Women's Conference, was to launch the Girls' Leadership Workshop. Now over a decade old, GLW at ERVK continues to teach girls Leadership the Eleanor Roosevelt Way, to use the title of the book by that name written by Robin Gerber. BTW a number of people are reading Robin's novel that fantasizes that ER actually did run for President, Eleanor vs. Ike. We came pretty darn close in this country to electing a woman as President this time. That too shall come to pass.
