You are a global woman—as are we all. We have the potential to be global leaders as well—women who support and speak out on behalf of women everywhere.
Think of women you admire because they are good leaders. They may be famous or not so famous. They may be living or dead. They may be people you have personally encountered or those you have read about. They may be from the United States or from elsewhere in the world.
Great leaders listen with their heart. They watch out for stories about injustice. Human rights violations occur when governments believe no one is watching. Stop, look, listen to the world. It’s easy to get overwhelmed, but don’t hide yourself in a veil of ignorance. Listen—and let the stories take root in your heart. Accept the call to be a person who will bring light into a darkened world.
