Women are gaining influence as leaders throughout the world fighting for peace, justice, the environment and civil society. In this program we profile three courageous women elders honoring their lives of dedication to far reaching social movements. We’ll hear their personal stories and hear about their current work.

Dolores Huerta co-founded the United Farm Workers of America and is a tireless advocate for social justice; Mairead Corrigan Maguire won the Nobel Peace Prize for organizing a grassroots non-violence movement in Northern Ireland.

Tammy, I agree! I showed this to some of my girl fridens after class today and they all were inspired. Girls all over the world should be given a chance to realize and actualize their dreams as so many courageous women have done (and been given the opportunity) to do before them! Love that She’s The First champions this!
