Women of Week Round-Up: April 18th - April 29th

by Susan Butler


There have been a lot of noteworthy women in the news the past two weeks, and I particularly want to highlight Kristen Griest, the United States Army’s first female infantry officer, and my new hero. Let’s get started!

With Equal Pay Day happening on Tuesday, this was a great week for women in business news! While it makes me glad that so many people are doing their part to raise awareness about this important issue, it shouldn’t be an issue at all. Equal pay is a no-brainer. Let’s get started!

Women of the Week(s) Round-Up: March 28th - April 8th

by Susan Butler


Because I fell behind, this round-up will cover March 28th – April 8th. I have to say, transitioning into this new format has been a learning experience for me, and I’m still adjusting. My ultimate goal was to be able to honor as many women as possible. Yet as soon as I hit post, I remember a story about another phenomenal female leader, entrepreneur, athlete, social activist, etc., who has not been included in the post.

This week was very special because I get to spotlight a good friend of mine, Nina McLemore! Additionally, past honoree, Denise Morrison also made headlines this week. Let’s get started.

Last week was a HUGE week for prominent women in the news. We saw the First Lady of the United States give an incredible speech at South by Southwest. Pope Francis announced that Mother Teresa will officially be canonized as a Saint this fall. My good friend, Karen Kalish, was featured in a fantastic magazine spread! And unfortunately, we lost one of the best female British authors of the modern era, Anita Brookner, who died March 10th at the age of 87. Although this news is a bit belated, I would be remiss in not honoring Brookner’s life. Let’s get started.

Last Sunday saw the death one of America’s most powerful First Ladies. It is with a heavy heart and on a somber note that I commence this week’s round-up.

This is the first post I’ve done since the start of Women’s History Month and I’m already excited. As March continues, look out for lots of new content and hopefully some new initiatives! I’m always eager to hear from all of you, so if you have any ideas regarding who or what we should cover this month, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via Twitter or Facebook.

Women of the Week Round-Up: In Honor of Black History Month

by Susan Butler


In honor of the last Friday of Black History Month, I have decided to dedicate this week’s round-up to just a handful of the most influential black women in America’s history. I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that this list barely scratches the surface, and I only wish that I had enough time to honor all of the incredible women who have forever changed the course of our history. Please note that in an effort to include more of these wonderful ladies, I have had to shorten my own commentary on them; however, I do encourage you to spend some time familiarizing yourself with all – but certainly the lesser-known – women on this list.

Earlier this week, in a succinct post on her Tumblr, Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) announced that she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

This week, women in literature seemed to steal the headlines. On a more somber note, I am deeply saddened by the news of Harper Lee’s death. However, her legacy will never be forgotten. Teenagers everywhere will learn the bounds of their own courage along with Scout Finch.
