Women Shaping History
Women have come a long way since the days of our grandmothers who were content to raise children, stoke the proverbial fire in the hearth, and be the ballast in the family, maintaining a sense of equilibrium and security.
The women appearing in this issue, may do all that their forbears did, but in addition, have used their talents to improve the lives of others.
Education Update is proud to have interviewed twelve illustrious women who have made significant changes in the field of education, music, medicine, veterinary medicine, humanism, domestic violence, history, public policy, circus education, corporate contributions to education and unions and education. We salute these women who truly are our leaders: Marin Alsop, Kathryn Anderson, Mary Brabeck, Yaffa Eliach, Temple Grandin, Kati Haycock, Yolanda Jimenez, Jill Levy, Diane Ravitz, Randi Weingarten, Peggy Williams and Kathryn Wylde.
We also welcome the commentaries of our contributors President August Souza Kappner and Dr. Mary Blake.
Read, reread and savor their words of wisdom.#
