Today is the 20th anniversary of Take Our Daughters to Work Day. We took Carol Gilligan’s research on how girls' sense of voice and power at adolescence suddenly fell and used it to create a day where girls were paired with people who could acknowledge them for attributes that strengthened their self esteem, build their resilience, and introduce them to workplaces and careers many of them had never dreamed of.Read More
Today the world celebrates Earth Day, and while there are so many ways to think about helping the environment, five of our own MAKERS remind us about the one thing we can all relate to: food.
To our MAKERS community,
We are saddened by the tragic events that unfolded yesterday afternoon at the Boston Marathon. Many of you have reached out to us because one of our close friends and MAKERS is Kathrine Switzer, the first woman to officially enter the Boston Marathon. Kathrine was indeed at the marathon today and we just received word that she is safe and with her husband at their hotel. We thank all of you for your concern and we wanted to let you know this information right away.Read More

Today, April 9, 2013, is National Equal Pay Day, created in 2006 to help raise awareness of the wage gap. The day reflects how far into the current year women must work to match what men earned in the previous year. Our own MAKER Lilly Ledbetter waged a personal battle for equal pay that led to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Act in 2009, a huge step in the right direction for equal gender pay!
We lost a true champion of liberty today. Lady Margaret Thatcher passed away at the age of 87 after suffering a stroke.Read More
As you may know, April is Sexual Assault Awareness month, a month dedicated to taking a stance to prevent sexual violence. As the country continues to make strides in the right direction, we are proud that five of our own MAKERS have made incredible efforts to protect women and raise awareness.
This Sunday, AMC's Mad Men returns for its sixth season and takes off in America's transformative year of 1968. While we hope Don Draper becomes enlightened with some progressive knowledge this season, we can't depend on that, so we're supplementing the season premiere with 5 MAKERS sharing their perspectives on the game-changing year and the milestone women's history moments that it saw.Read More
I’ve spent a lot of time watching one inspiring story after another, so I thought I'd share some of my favorites with you in MAKERS very first ever playlist.Read More
