How did Gloria Feldt go from being a teen mother and high school drop out, to president and CEO of Planned Parenthood? Tune in to find out. Gloria Feldt is an activist, keynote speaker and president of Take The Lead, the new women’s leadership movement to prepare, develop, inspire and propel women to take their fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors by 2025. Vanity Fair has called her one of “America’s Top 200 Women Leaders, Legends, and Trailblazers”. I spoke with Gloria in 2010 after the publication of her book No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power. Considering the historic Hobby Lobby ruling that took place a couple weeks ago, I thought it would be a perfect time to listen back to our conversation.
Listen to our conversation below!
Sandra Bernhard is famous for many things: her roles in Scorsese's The King of Comedy and TV's Roseanne, her one-woman shows, her relationship with Madonna in the 80s, her outspoken activism, and putting drag queens on the map.
In town to perform her latest one-woman show I Love Being Me Don't You?, she called in to talk about her love of fashion, her childhood dreams of being a "comedienne", where her confidence comes from, how being a mother has changed her and why she doesn't love twitter, but tweets anyway.
Oh-- and it's pronounced Sandra, like SAND-ra, or ANN-dra... not Sahhdra like BLOND-dra. Just tune in, you'll understand.
