Gloria's Pick*
I'm mesmerized by the dedicated, talented, beautiful Olympic athletes in Rio this week. Here’s an eye-opener though: It's “totally anachronistic” to keep women participating in fewer Olympic events, says sports scientist Michael Joyner in the Wall Street Journal. The author also presents evidence that some sports have been sex segregated unnecessarily to keep women from beating men.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"We need to keep changing the attitude that permits the routine harassment of women, whether they’re walking down the street or daring to go online. We need to keep changing the attitude that teaches men to feel threatened by the presence and success of women."

 SPOTLIGHT ON LEADERSHIP AMBASSADOR:
Tabby Biddle

"I knew I had the power to use my voice to make a difference in how we view women in the world and bring us to a place of equality and balance with the masculine when I learned about pre-patriarchal history -- the history of the Goddess. My motto is: For women, leadership is not necessarily something that needs to be learned, as much as it needs to be remembered."
