Last week I joined many other Hunter alumna (including one from the class of '46!) to marvel at the ingenuity, passion and commitment of the early leaders in the suffrage movement. Inspiring and fun! President Jennifer Raab, Congreswoman Carolyn Maloney and other prominent New Yorkers, told fascinating stories and reminded us of how hard this path toward equality can be!

This may not be news from today's media, yet the question of what gives meaning to our lives is newsworthy, right?  According to Dr. Brene Brown, what gives meaning to life is connection. All too often what prevents connection is the "I'm not good enough." This TED talk is powerful and was certainly life changing for me.

Excerpts from speech in April 2010 at the Westover School, an all girls school in Middlebury, CT where Charlotte Beyer graduated in 1965.

It began in chapel in 1963. We recited first Corinthians “When I became a man, I put away childish things.” My 'new girl' brain was thinking ‘Whhaat?! When I become a man!?!?’

But I was a scaredy cat at Westover. I was not a head of school and spent most of my time trying to be liked, and if possible, play a woman, not a man(!) in one of the Dramatic Club productions.
