Memorable Quotes:

“My focus, my purpose, and my great vision for all of us is that women are full equal players in the economy and in their whole lives.” (6:13, Nell)

Women that I observed and even experienced and did a little bit probably myself is this feeling that we had to sort of law our way into the room. We had to claw our way through people to try and get an opportunity for promotion. So sometimes there’s a perception with somen that we’re against each other, rather than with.” (12:29, Betty)

“What I learned more than anything was to be in charge of your money and your time. And then it’s harder for people to knock you off your game.” (19:57, Nell)

“I think one of the things that women of my generation gave up is that we decided to present ourselves like a head in a box, that because we’re so busy proving that we were as smart as men, that we knew what we were talking about, that we could not try.” (22:43, Nell)

“Sometimes you need a battering ram in order to see that you’ve got to transform. And maybe that’s one of the positive things that came out of this entire pandemic.” (28:40, Betty)

“I would say to every woman listening, you need to congratulate yourself and we all need to acknowledge what we’ve been through this year.” (52:38, Nell)
