The Meeting

This week, I overheard Dee Dee Myers, the former (and first woman as well as 2nd youngest) White House Press Secretary on a news show. She was in a panel discussion about the congressional hearings of Judge Sonia Sotomayor, nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court. According to Myers, almost every girl and woman has "felt left out" at a meeting, even female justices in the highest court of our land. This made me think, "Wow, if a woman makes it all the way to Supreme Court Justice and is still ignored, it just goes to show! We're never too young, girls, to work on being noticed, acknowledged and heard. Of course, this means having something to offer in a meaningful way...not to bore the audience...know what you're talking on subject...and cut to the chase.
