Remembering A Bold Trailblazer Who Fought For Equity For Women In Sports

Recently on January 6, 2022, the NY Times published an article honoring the recently deceased Christine Grant, the University of Iowa’s first women’s athletic director and a pioneer who helped shape the 1972 Title IX legislation, tirelessly advocating for the fair treatment of women in sports.

It’s easy to gloss over how tough it was for trailblazing women like Christine Grant to make a difference in what had been (and too often, still is), a man’s world. Without a doubt, it’s due to their lifelong resolve and refusal to accept sub-standard treatment that women’s sports are where they are today, and where they are going tomorrow. And yet, we’re so far from where we need to be.

My favorite quote from Grant in the article:

“We cannot continue as a nation to continue discarding the dreams and the talents of half of our population.”

The 5 Things You Need To Know To Thrive And Succeed As A Woman Founder

On Nov 12, 2021 11:14:53 AM

, women in business, women entrepreneurs, women leaders, rethinking women in business

Did you know that today, women own 40% of businesses in the US, which amounts to 12 million businesses? One way of looking at this is to say, wow, 12 million is a lot of businesses. But I am tempted to look at it another way. Why only 40%? Along the same lines, only 20% of funded companies have women founders, according to a 2019 EoY Diversity Report. Again, I question why only 20%? What is holding women back from founding companies? To try to get at some answers, I talked about all this and more when I was recently interviewed by Authority magazine for its interview series, “Why We Need More Women Founders.” You can find the interview here.

Longing For The Day When We Don't Need International Women's Day

"If the Golden Rule is to treat people as you want to be treated, the Platinum Rule is to treat people as they want to be treated. If you're truly a global citizen, you have to practice the Platinum Rule."  - Denise Meagles

Yesterday was International Women's Day, and the month of March is Women's History Month. How should we mark these two events? How do we adequately honor and celebrate all of the incredible things women have accomplished throughout history, their contributions to human civilization and culture and progress? It's a tall order. 

But a different way of looking at this is to ask, why do we need an International Women's Day and a Women's History Month? Is it because in spite of all our smashing of myths and shattering of glass ceilings, women are still not equal to men? Women of color are even more unequal.

At our Rethink with Andi Simon Roundtable which met today, we discussed this and a lot more. I'd like to share with you some of the ideas that were put forth because hopefully they can help us understand how to make the world better, for women, for men, for all of us. Enjoy and please share.
