My conversation with former Oprah producer, Dianne Hudson, about women's hair, re-inventing ourselves and living our lives fully.

African women couldn’t get a job if their hair wasn’t straight. You couldn’t leave the house if your hair wasn’t done and straightened. Many of us, outside of work, wore afros because that was natural for us, but it was not accepted unless you wanted to be radical. And with radical hair, came risks in those times. Companies had rules about hair for African Americans. One rule… no afros. Another rule… showing up in braids would get you fired.

We’re all in this together but we have a long way to go. Hear their powerful and personal accountings beginning in the 1950’s June Cleaver era and bringing us to the present day and passion-fueled climate of Time’s Up.

On March 1, 2019 at the Alexander Hotel in downtown Indianapolis, join Women Like Us Foundation’s President and CEO Linda Rendleman and her daughter, celebrity host, activist and prominent voice for the Time’s Up movement, Catt Sadler.

The duo has been invited to speak by the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce at their annual Women In Business Retreat.

“We’re thrilled to be invited to take part in such an inspiring and motivating event for women in our own hometown.” said Linda Rendleman. “And to be able to share the stage with my daughter, Catt, will be so much fun for us!”

From June Cleaver to Time’s Up, their presentation, promoted as Women Like Us, shares personal stories and experiences from days of discrimination where women couldn’t get a checking account without their husband’s signature and women’s pay was 54% that of men to today’s climate for change along with Catt’s decision to leave E Entertainment Network as a host after learning that her co host was making twice her salary.

Catt and Linda are excited to be a part of a lively discussion with the women in attendance and coming together in these most important times.

A Nod to All the Women Everywhere… and the upcoming women’s march this Saturday, the 19th of January, 2018.

I’m so very proud to be a woman and especially proud to call myself a friend of so many dynamic women in the world. It literally gives me goose bumps when I look around and see where women are today. Intelligent, compassionate, driven, talented, and all joining together in collaboration to use their voices for a better world.

I found this amazing summary and think it’s the perfect time to share it with all of you!

WHERE WOMEN WERE BEFORE THE EARLY 1970S IN THE U.S.

Women couldn’t get birth control if they were unmarried until 1973.

Women couldn’t serve on a jury until 1973.

Women couldn’t get an abortion until 1973.

Women couldn’t sue for sexual harassment until 1977.

Linda Rendleman - Helping Women Become More Powerful {Audio Included}

Linda stressed how excited she is about the ideas she read in Dr. Nancy’s new book In This Together. She and Dr. Nancy have walked similar paths in their advocacy for women (since the days when women couldn’t get credit cards in their own name or birth control if they weren’t married) and she feels a tremendous reward at the momentum that is building for women.

Women Like Us 2018! What we've done and where we're headed!

We have co-produced two fabulous educational workshops attended by over 400 children. In the Maasi Mara 98% of the little girls are brutally mutilated (FGM) and then sold into a life of slavery. Our 3-day workshops teach the boys and girls in all areas of HIV, FGM, hygiene, self-esteem, early childhood pregnancy, education and much more. Simultaneously, we hold a one-day workshop for the Maasai tribesmen and adult women. These workshops have a proven track record in a neighboring tribe. In just 5 years we have reduced the number of victims from 98% to 80%. We are saving lives and are committed with your help to continue this impactful work.

This from Women's E News...Women's Movement Books

(WOMENSENEWS)— A lightbulb, maybe even an alarm bell, went off when I was showing the high school interns the office. We stopped in front of the framed photo of the moment on Oct. 1, 1991—a mere 24 years ago—when Barbara Boxer, then a member of the House, led five other female lawmakers up the steps of the Senate, demanding that it hold a hearing on Anita Hill’s sex-harassment allegations against Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. What happened after that had much of the country transfixed for a kind of reality TV episode that we had never lived through before.

Three Feminist Artists Shaping History

As women are dominating the year, we can’t help but get excited. We’ve covered musicians to entrepreneurs and all the in between. This week, we’d like to take a look at three highly notable feminist artists who have made a dent in history with their works. At a time when gender equality is on the rise and power moves are being made, art is one of the most celebrated yet often underrated ways we, as women, have to fight back. Let’s dive into these artsy ladies!

Gelila Bekele talks with Catt about her heart, her love and her passion for humanitarian work.

I was fortunate to meet this beautiful humanitarian, Gelila Bekele, when I was in New York recently.  What a light she is... and what wonderful work she is doing.  At 31 years she's founded 80 schools in Ethiopa.  And she is sure to help us understand that the founding is just the beginning.  It's the sustaining that makes true impact.

When I told her about our work with Women Like Us...she totally got it.  We can't just drop in and do a little...we stick with the women we support and do what we can.  Our support is ongoing...that's how you get it done, girls!

My daughter Catt sat down for a full interview, you can read it HERE on The Catt Walk.
