A Woman’s Worth

A Woman’s Worth

The worth of a woman was a very interesting topic when I was asked to be a part of the Santita Jackson and Friends Show earlier this week. Santita Jackson is the oldest daughter of civil rights activist, Jesse Jackson. The show was taped at the legendary Rainbow Push Headquarters in Chicago.

While I was thinking about what we would discuss during the taping, I started to ponder the title of the program and the value that women have in our society.

In many cases, women are devalued and considered less than in lots of societal terms. We are paid less than men. We are victimized at higher numbers across the board. There are countless examples of all the areas in which there are reduced images and thoughts of us.

But I am so grateful that my personal value is not attached to societal norms nor opinions. My value has been instilled in me by my parents and my dignity is grounded in the essence of who I am. No images on television, lyrics in the latest rap song nor words from any man or woman can change what I know to be the truth about who I am.

But what about all those who do not know their value? Those who were not fortunate enough to have two parents to instill such beliefs in them where what they think they are is directly tied to the reduced versions of who they were told they are by society. By the limiting thinking, capacity and shortcomings of others, an abundance of girls and women have been painted false perceptions of themselves.

It is the job of us all to speak life into girls and women at all levels and in all ways in our society.

They need us. We may be the only positive reinforcement that many of them will ever receive.

Some Amazing Women Coming Up in 2019

Some Amazing Women Coming Up in 2019

After spending some wonderful downtime with myself and my family for Thanksgiving, it is time for me to break away from my cocoon and get back to work and close out the end of 2018.

Holidays are always so wonderful spent with family and friends and being able to unplug from my busy, busy, busy life and take some time to just stop and breathe.

After taking some unexpected time off, but clearly so necessary for my mind, body and spirit, I am back at work interviewing fabulous women for an upcoming Women on the Move episode.

There are some amazing women coming up in 2019 and I am so grateful to be able to share their stories with the world.

Emily Perl Kingsley was a writer for Sesame Street for nearly 5 decades. The 23 Emmy Award winner created the first characters on television with disabilities and the first network television movie that featured a disabled person.

Elaine Adler heads the Adler Aphasia Center which is the leading organization for Aphasia in the world. Her and her husband started the center when he developed the condition. I was told Elaine’s age prior to meeting her, but when I saw her in person, I had to ask her myself because I couldn’t believe it. She looks so fabulous!

Di’ta Monique has an unbelievable story of survival. If I hadn’t been the person to find her and produce her story, I probably wouldn’t have believed it myself. This singer and actress’ story will surely make you a believer in the impossible. We all had tears in our eyes as she shared her story when we filmed yesterday.

I will keep you posted on the airing dates of these amazing women as their stories are all absolutely worth watching when they air.

As the year comes to a close and I look forward to 2019, I am overwhelmed and utterly grateful for the abundance present in my life. Thank you all for being a part of my journey. The ride just wouldn’t be the same without you here sharing it with me.

I excitedly await all to come in 2019!
