One response to “The Empowerment Project documentary

  1. Very inspiring film about sisterhood between 5 women making this documentary and the powerful, extraordinary women they interview from LA to NYC: a math professor, a pilot, an athlete/fitness coach, chef/restaurant owner, an architect, founder of running program “Girls on the Run”, a Space Shuttle astronaut, Miss USA 2012, Vice Admiral (4 stars) in U.S. Navy. The messages from the movie were transformative, about living your passions & dreams (even if they are hobbies), loving & creating your own world, finding role models, helping girls & women. Question at the end for future discussion – “What would you do, if you were not afraid to fail?” Stayed tuned for Feb. 13 for further discussions on this topic at YWCA Tucson. Today’s event sponsored by Organizing for America, President Obama’s dream project.
