Jane’s Thoughts on #WHM

“The best gift we can give our loved ones, communities, and society as a whole is to live our lives using the skills, talents and gifts bestowed upon us.

It is a privilege if we can do it with words as a powerful medium where we can share stories that will last generations. On this year’s #IWD and #WHM, I would call on women in the sector: Editors, Publishers, Writers, Marketers and those who are rooting for women in their lives to use your platform to change your world and create the one you seek. To address gender bias and inequality and share stories of the world we seek for our children and generations long after we are gone.”
