We are joined by business pioneer, Norma Yaeger 

Before there was a women’s ‘movement’, there were women who were changing the social culture because they had the gumption to change their lives.  When these changes reached social awareness, the “women’s movement” became a wave on which many floated while few really did the paddling.  As women took their well-earned roles in family, business and political leadership, the foundational issues became secondary to politicized points that are pedantic by comparison. 

 

And so, the women’s movement today seems to revolve around abortion rights birth control pills.  but its roots and purpose meant so much more to America in general and women in particular. It is almost forgotten that the right to vote, the right to work, and the right to privacy are cornerstones cut and set by unnamed, grey-haired warrior women who fought the battles before the issues ever became headlines.

 

There is no question that women, as citizens, professionals, athletes and soldiers, are as valuable as men, and that is in the best interest of America.  But the hard-fought history is getting buried in half-baked headlines.  To really understand, it could be said that “you had to be there!”     Norma Yaeger was there!
