Je Suis Charlie

Tuesday, January 13, 2015 @ 4:37 PM

In the wake of the tragic shootings in Paris and the controversy in the USA over the movie, THE INTERVIEW, I've been thinking a lot about leaders and the importance of continuing to raise our voices, even in the face of push-back, disdain and threats.

Sometimes those threats can mean life or death, as in the case of the French journalists or the over three million, including 40 world leaders, who marched arm in arm in Paris to proclaim, "Je suis, Charlie. We will not be silenced!". 

Or, it can be as subtle as well-intentioned, but insidious, career advice. I'll never forget the Ford executive who told me, "Anne, you've got to stop always seeing things through the eyes of a woman. People are getting really tired of it!" The "people" he was referring to, of course, were all men, many of whom would have preferred I always saw things their way, or at least stifled myself more often! 

My 2015 message is simply this: BE COURAGEOUS. Dare to continue raising your voice to make a positive difference. Everywhere we look, the human family is crying out for the mothers of the world -- women -- to step up and take an equal role in shaping the economic, cultural, educational, military and public policy decisions that impact all human possibility. 

I love the words of Admiral Michelle Howard, vice chief of U.S. Naval Operations, who is raising the Navy's game. She recently told a Washington, DC audience, "My definition of leadership is 'Not standing around and doing nothing while watching everything go to hell!'” Everywhere we look, things are going to hell.

Pick your passion. Then put your shoulder to the wheel and find the courage to let your voice be heard.

Is This A Hillary Moment?

Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 6:38 AM

With our presidential election less than one year away and our nation dismayed with the leadership deadlock in Washington, D.C. the drumbeat is growing for a Hillary Clinton presidency.  I don't expect it to happen, but when the Wall Street Journal publishes a major Op Ed advocating her election, you know we've come a long way toward being ready to elect our first woman president.  Click here for the WSJ commentary.

WHO SAYS WAR AND PEACE ARE MEN'S DOMAIN?

Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 10:18 AM

I've just started watching the bold, powerful PBS 5-part series, WOMEN, WAR & PEACE.   It is airing every Tuesday night through Nov. 8th -- 10 p.m. EST in Detroit, check your local listings.   It challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are the domain of men, brings you up close to the impact of war on women and girls in Bosnia, Liberia, Afghanistan, Columbia -- and how they are standing up and Powering UP!  to not just survive as victims but to lead the way to new solutions to one of the world's oldest horrors.  

Here's the trailer and more:  Women, War & Peace.
