Women of the Week Round-Up: February 1st - February 5th

by Susan Butler

 

I’m so excited to be sharing this inaugural “Women of the Week” column. Every woman on this list is someone who has made headlines in the last week, but I am certain that they will continue to make news for the duration of their already impressive careers. Enjoy!

A Special Announcement

by Susan Butler

 

Every week, choosing a woman to honor becomes more and more difficult. This is entirely because every week, so many women – both in the US and abroad – are making headlines for their extraordinary accomplishments. Choosing just one to spotlight has become nearly impossible.

Woman of the Week: Tsai Ing-Wen

by Susan Butler

 

In the past two months or so, I’ve had the privilege of honoring not one, but two women who hail from countries other than the US. This week, I celebrate a third international woman: the president-elect of Taiwan, Tsai Ing-wen – the first female leader in Taiwan’s history.

Wednesday's Woman of the Week: Julie Zeilinger

by Susan Butler

 

It’s always great to encounter people who demonstrate just how driven they are early in their lives. This Wednesday’s Woman of the Week, Julie Zeilinger, is the paradigm of ambition. For that reason, along with the fact that she was recently named one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in the media category, Zeilinger is this week’s honoree.

Wednesday's Woman of the Week: Sheryl Sandberg 2.0

by Susan Bulkeley Butler

 

Back in June, I honored Sheryl Sandberg, not just for her contributions to the business world, but for showing remarkable grace in the face of devastating loss in the wake of her husband’s death. Yesterday, Sandberg hosted a chat on the popular Q&A site, Quora. Fortune published some of their favorite quotes.

Wednesday's Woman of the Week: Angela Merkel

by Susan Butler

 

I was pleasantly surprised to see that German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, had been named TIME’s Person of the Year for 2015. However, before I had even finished reading, “The Choice,” the introduction of to the brilliantly detailed profile, I realized that choosing Merkel must have been an easy decision. Not only has she been dubbed the “Most Powerful Woman in the World,” and been credited for being the driving force behind keeping the European Union united, she has shown remarkable courage and compassion in a time when it would be easier to look away. For this reason – along with so many others – I am proud to join TIME in honoring The Chancellor of Germany.

Wednesday's Woman of the Week: In Honor of Rosa Parks Day

by Susan Butler

 

Yesterday, December 1st, 2015, marked the 60th anniversary of the day that Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat to a male white passenger in Montgomery, AL. Segregation on buses was legal at that time in Alabama, so Parks was promptly arrested. This brave act of passive resistance catalyzed the legendary Montgomery Bus Boycott and earned Parks the title of “Mother of the Modern Day Civil Rights Movement.”

A Thanksgiving Message and Wednesday's Woman of the Week: Sarah Hale

by Susan Butler

 

History is more than just a collection of names and dates. Today, I would like to take a moment to celebrate a woman who has made an indelible mark on American history, in spite of the fact that her name has been largely forgotten: Sarah Josepha Hale.

I would also like to take this opportunity to give thanks – not just for my wonderful friends and family, but also for all of the opportunities that are rapidly becoming more and more available to women. We still have a long way to go, but every once in awhile, it’s important to stop and take a look at how far we have come.
