Celebrating Women’s History Month

As we wrap up the month of March, I thought that as a company comprised entirely of women focused on marketing to women, we should pay homage to Women’s History Month. I was flipping through this month’s issue of Vanity Fair this weekend and was struck by its feature, “Lean In, Lean On,” that showcases 17 diverse female leaders, many of whom are mothers, from every arena. The article discusses what they’ve marked as a “new era of achievement” for females.

Some of VF’s choices included the following powerful women in the field of media and communications:

  • Marissa Mayer, Yahoo President and C.E.O.
  • Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook C.O.O. (whose book Lean In, which I very much enjoyed reading, also helped inspire the feature)
  • Oprah Winfrey, Media mogul and OWN Network C.E.O.
  • Kathryn Bigelow, Film director, producer and screenwriter

Happy Women’s History Month! Who are some women leaders that inspire you?
