Hello Everyone:
This video conversation Girls:  A No Ceiling Conversation took place live last month with Chelsea and Hillary Clinton being interviewed in the 1 hour and 15 min. video below. It’s excellent and worth watching if you care about the challenges girls face and how their challenges cause our economy not to perform as well as it could.
It’s available for REPLAY by clicking on the link in the body of the letter.  Chelsea and Hillary appear after the first 10 minutes of an introduction and information about the project.  I stated in a previous blog last month that Chelsea Clinton has developed into an intelligent, elegant and polished executive.
I was planning on sending this conversation on Mother’s Day; however, First Lady Michelle Obama’s sent a powerful message in lieu of the president’s weekly address.  Mrs. Obama spoke from her heart on the kidnapping of 200+ Nigerian girls designed to call domestic and international attention to this tragic event which everyone wants to see resolved peacefully and as soon as possible.
UNITED STATES 
While these events seems distant and not in the immediate interest of the United States–one of the important points Mrs. Obama brought up was that this problem is not an isolated incident.
Everyday girls are kidnapped throughout the world including the United States–not on such a large scale; but, for equally unconscionable reasons.
Most of our society’s damaging treatment other than outright abuse is the squashing of the dreams and aspirations of young girls and one of the sorriest problems is that our society still pays women on average 3/4 of what men earn for equally comparable jobs.
Paraphrasing President Obama from his 2014 State of the Union Address; “it’s an embarrassment that in 2014 our society acts like an episode of Mad Men when it comes to equal pay for equal work”.

The stories and experiences of women and girls are a critical part of this project. Join us for this first conversation.
