Interview with Carol Jenkins, President of Women's Media Center

January 20, 2009

Carol Jenkins, nationally-acclaimed TV news journalist and the founding president of the Women's Media Center spoke to me recently about where she sees American women today as we continue to ascend toward greater leadership positions in shaping our nation.  

 I'm posting our conversation on an historic day in United States history:  January 20th, 2009.  Inauguration Day for Barack Obama, our 44th president and the first African American to take what he described toay as a "sacred oath."  We rejoice in this day and look forward to greater numbers of women and people of all colors -- black, brown, yellow and red -- to come together, as Obama challenged us to do to fulfill the promise of America.  Click here to listen to the thoughts of Jenkins, another remarkable American leader, on the qualities she believes women achievers need to develop as we continue to evolve -- in greater numbers -- into genuine leaders. 

P.S. If you haven't seen the excellent video, Sexism Sells But We're Not Buying It, that the Women's Media Center put together during the presidential campaign, it's don't miss material.  It pulls together a stunning sampling of outrageously sexist comments made by national political news commentator during the 2008 presidential campaign.
