The "Role Model" by Anchor Mom
•   July 8, 2015

...I showed her a picture of Eleanor Roosevelt and explained how she was the “first” First Lady who made sure she was heard.  She fought for more women in the workplace and civil rights…she wasn’t afraid to make some waves.  Her husband, the President of the United States, looked to her as an advisor.
I showed her pictures of Mother Teresa, Harriet Tubman, Margaret Thatcher and Marie Curie.  I told her about Jessica Savitch…who has always been described as a hot head, but she certainly paved the path for women like myself in journalism.
Giana kind of looked at me with an expression like “ok, you showed me a bunch of pictures of old ladies…most of whom are not alive.”
