Tucson, AZ, August 02, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- "The day will come when man will recognize woman as his peer, not only at the fireside, but in councils of the nation. Then, and not until then, will there be the perfect comradeship, the ideal union between the sexes that shall result in the highest development of the race." Susan B. Anthony, American activist for the causes of abolition, education reform, women’s equality, and labor rights made this statement in the 1800s. Anthony’s leadership, individually and alongside Elizabeth Cady Stanton, paved the way for the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which passed in 1920, giving women the right to vote.
Online community Women on the Verge founder, Ana Lewis, announces the August 2011 Hot Topic “Women in Leadership Roles.” Said Lewis, “Susan B. Anthony and her peers paved the way for women, not only in America, but all over the world, to become leaders, to bring their unique female perspective to bear in solving challenges both large and small.” Lewis invites members and new members to share their insight on the WOTV Blog regarding the women in leadership roles who have helped mold and shape their lives.
Teachers, nurses, athletes, lawyers, doctors, stay-at-home moms - married or unmarried; women have a long history of influence in matters from the domestic to the international. Women on the Verge continues the tradition of honoring the roles of women with this discussion of women in leadership on the WOTV website during the month of August.
Ana Lewis notes: “WOTV is the place where stereotypes are broken and we are empowered by it. Where our success is celebrated and our pain gets a hug. What you have to say matters. We hear you and support your voice.”
Women on the Verge is a fresh, growing, free, global, online community of women (and a few men) encouraging and supporting each other to speak and let their voices be heard.
