WOMEN, THE NEW STAND-UP GUYS
Entrepreneurially, culturally, spiritually– and more than ever, politically–contemporary American women are a vibrant force. Consider the collective global influence on women by these one-namers: Michelle, Angelina, Beyonce, Taylor, Meryl, Hillary, Oprah, Kamala, Elizabeth. Or, consider Cher, Gaga and Madonna. To mistake these iconic, ballsy women as mere 'entertainers' misses the point. These last three names alone have inspired and empowered women around the planet more pervasively than men know. There are more, and not all are in entertainment, like soccer icon Megan Rapinoe, or Serena. Could we have said this in the 1980s? 90s? …..from all that I’ve heard, seen, read, and experienced, women in the US today are more diligent, more active, more focused, more career and financially oriented, more curious, more volunteering, more communicative, more collaborative, and– wait for it–more ethical than their male counterparts.
