Mary Anne speaks of hope for the future as she recognizes there are unique skills common in all who identify as women and girls. They generally have a good memory for what happened, both the experience and emotion of it all. Women also seem to pay attention to the details and can, if they chose to, really listen to others and let them know they are heard. The future looks for women leaders being younger, our daughters and granddaughter will not get to say – “I’m the first girl, the first women to do this as all will belong to girls and women and proof of being overqualified will not be required. What a wonderful world.
