The power of social media is undeniable. It allows everyone to tell and share their own story. Many women of the past never had the opportunity to tell their story, and as a consequence, their voices and experiences were silenced or lost. Until now…
- Story is powerful. Use your voice to lift others by sharing their story!
- When women support each other, we change the world.
- It’s never too late to revive the untold stories of the past.
Today’s guest, Leslie Zemeckis, is a master of storytelling with a passion for writing the stories of powerful, unique women whose stories otherwise may have been lost to history. As Kathleen McGowan, author of The Magdalene Line series said, “History is not what happened but what is written down.” Leslie is changing history by telling the stories of women in American pop culture from the early part of the 20th century who were dismissed, ignored, or never asked for their point of view.
Her mission to elevate women doesn’t end with women of the past! She is elevating the stories being told on social media today through her EMPOWERMENT CHALLENGE.
Once a week, post something about someone else, an artist, friend, philanthropist, whomever, who is making the world better (in big ways and small) who needs a light shone on them, and together we can empower others and rise higher, through stories that really matter today.
