Having other women CEO's as friends and advisors makes all the difference in the world in this very male dominated Washington, DC. Thank you for being such a great sounding board and inspiration.

This is disgusting. Voting should never be considered a privilege for those who can afford it. This is a poll tax. If you are going to suppress votes at least be honest about your motivations. This is about power.

This anti-imigrant E-Verify commercial just now during the debate is total B.S. Let's talk about how many people are mistakenly flagged and forced to prove who they are because of the flaws with that system. Ugh. I can't.

There’s so much happening. Just today. It’s okay to feel sadness, anger, angst. War, bloodshed, devastating fires and earthquakes, poverty, hunger and hate should never be normal to us. But please know that we’re not over. We have opportunities before us to change our course.

We are on the verge of seeing the ERA ratified in enough states to make it part of the U.S. Constitution - but we need Congress to act and remove the deadline

Meanwhile we rank 27th for healthcare and education globally. Perhaps if we were #1 we wouldn't be in a debt crisis or never ending wars.
