#Dontmesswithme: Nancy, Bella, Gabrielle, Tarana, Melinda, Oby, and Other Women’s Lessons in the Power of Your Voice

Issue 116 — December 8, 2019

Like so many women of her generation, especially those first to hold powerful leadership roles, Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi displays a measured affect even under the most challenging situations. Despite being perpetually in one political cauldron or another, she wears the elegant mask of a woman who learned long ago how to avoid being disregarded as too emotional, too angry, or even the slightest bit out of control.

What she said.
An example of the power of women’s voices to change the world.
What an honor to follow at least metaphorically in the footsteps of #dontmesswithme women by receiving this Global Voice Award from the World Woman Summit!
