From Claudette Colvin, who inspired the Montgomery Bus Boycott, to Rachel Carson, who launched the environmental movement, the vision of women has the power to transform the world.
Visionary women leaders – from Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Ida B. Wells, to Ella Jo Baker and Fannie Lou Hamer, to Wangari Maathai, Ang San Suu Kyi, and Malala – have shaped, and are shaping, the world of the future. These women are inventors of democratic possibilities, inventors of new forms of justice, of connection, of community.
In the spirit of these predecessors, let’s continue their work for social transformation, and honor their commitment to future generations, by supporting the young women leaders of today.
