Eric Garcetti: Back to basics

la mayor eric garcetti speaks at makers 2014

"For all of us, politics isn't about somebody else; it isn't about another place or another time. It is about you, it is about here and it is about now."

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti shared how feminism has influenced his career and changed his attitude towards leadership. As mayor of a major city, the women in his life have helped open his eyes to different ways of thinking. He compared women's rights to a balloon that will deflate the moment we stop blowing into it, emphasizing everyone's responsibility to empower women and fight for equality.
