We cannot stop reading Cecile Richard's Op-Ed over on Elle.com It's that good. We could quote the whole, deliciously written thing, but here's a little teaser that's resonating with us big time.
"Helping women reach their full potential isn't just the right thing to do—it's the smart thing to do. Women are breadwinners in two-thirds of American households with children. Women save more than men, and when they spend, they're more likely to invest in their families and communities. Women-owned firms are the fastest growing segment of new business in the U.S., and there's a correlation between more women on corporate boards and higher profits. As Hillary points out, a huge percentage of America's growth over the last few decades is due to women entering the workforce. In other words, empowering women empowers families, communities, and our entire country."
Yes! Thank you, Cecile! Now go read the whole thing.
