Two nights ago I had the privilege of taking my mom to see #GloriaALife at the American Repertory Theater. We were surrounded by generations of people who have been moved and inspired by the work of Gloria Steinem.
There were so many lessons I took with me, but one of the most powerful was a reminder to take inventory of who you surround yourself with. Gloria faced challenges in the form of discrimination, misogyny, fear and failure but she had her tribe, her pack, her people to lift her up through all of this. The other women standing beside her, fighting for equality reminded her each day why she was doing the work that she was and gave her the strength needed to preserve.
Look at who you surround yourself with on a regular basis. Are they lifting you up or bringing you down?
History. Her Story. Our Story.
