8 Change-MAKING Women Share What They Learned From Their Fathers

For so many women, our fathers have been essential in helping us become the people we are today. The same goes for even the most powerful, creative, and groundbreaking women out there.

Eight of our MAKERS share what their fathers taught them that has had a lasting affect on them to this day. From legendary actress Diahann Carroll's father who did everything he could without an education to provide for his family to Ophelia Dahl's famous author father, Roald Dahl, who told her so many imaginative stories growing up she didn't realize how unusual it was until she stayed at a friend's house. 

So, to all the dads out there showing their daughters that they can do anything no matter how big or small, MAKERS wishes you a wonderful Father's Day!
