And How You Can Make History Too

Join us for a stirring, provocative conversation this Women’s History Month, with women making history now!

What barriers have they had to break through, what new direction the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are taking women, and what are they doing to make history today—along with you, our audience?

Join Rachel Feldman, director of movies, tv, and digital shorts, as well as screenwriter of the film Fair Fight which tells the story of Lily Ledbetter and Teresa Younger, CEO and President of the Ms. Foundation for a one of a kind conversation about women, history, and the powerTO make change happen in our lifetimes and as our legacy.

Tune in live to ask them your burning questions and share the some of the ways you are using the momentum of women's speaking out and up to make history in your life.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

RACHEL FELDMAN is a director and screenwriter. Having directed over 50 hours of network tv she is one of the few women directors to have broken through a male-dominated industry. A professional child actress who then became a storyboard artist for feature film directors such as Peter Yates and Brian DePalma, Ms. Feldman has a BA from Sarah Lawrence College and a MFA from NYU in film. Ms. Feldman has won many film awards and grants and spent several years making independent films in NY before she began directing TV in Hollywood.

TERESA C. YOUNGER has served as President and CEO of the Ms. Foundation for Women, the oldest women’s foundation in the United States since 2014. Under Teresa’s leadership, the Foundation launched #MyFeminismIs, a multimedia campaign sparking a national conversation on feminism; funded a groundbreaking report on the sexual abuse to prison pipeline; joined leading women’s foundations at the White House to announce a $100 million funding commitment to create pathways to economic opportunity for low-income women and girls; and led a campaign to hold the NFL accountable for violence against women.

A noted speaker, advocate, and activist, Teresa has been on the frontlines of some of the most important battles for women’s health, safety and economic justice.

HOSTED BY

Gloria Feldt

GLORIA FELDT is the Co-Founder and President of Take The Lead, has been an advocate for women for forty years. A former teen mom, her hard work and natural leadership abilities led her to a 30-year career at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, including a 10-year stint as its national president and CEO. People Magazine has called her “the voice of experience,” and Vanity Fair named her one of America’s “Top 200 Women Legends, Leaders, and Trailblazers.”

When she discovered that women have been stuck at 18 percent of top leadership positions for two decades, she knew she had to find a way to change that. The result: she wrote the bestselling book No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power to give women practical Power Tools that break down their unconscious barriers to greater personal and professional success. In 2014, she founded Take The Lead, an initiative to bring women to leadership parity by 2025.
