Her-Story

One of my favorite quotes comes from Nina Shaw—she’s a bada-s mama jama lawyer in Hollywood. She said, “If you want to be a woman in power, then empower other women.” Drop the microphone, Ms. Nina, because that is so true! Women, people of color, we come to the table with different sensibilities. And we all need to contribute to the conversation.
My grandmother used to say, “With great power comes great responsibility.” And I take my responsibility as a journalist very seriously. I go to work every day thrilled to be there. Even on the days I’m tired, I still think it’s a sh-tty schedule, but it’s a great job. Look at what we get to do. It’s a privilege and an honor. So enjoy it. – Gayle King
