"THE WORLD'S 100 MOST POWERFUL WOMEN" According to Forbes Magazine. OneWorld Recognizes Some Who Paved the Way - Trail-Blazers.

THE 100 WOMEN WHO RUN THE WORLD
 (According to Forbes Magazine)
Forbes, Caroline Howard, 08/22/2012

From CEOs and heads of state to early adopter entrepreneurs, celebrity role models, billionaire activists and philanthropists who are healing the world, Forbes ranks the women who matter most.

Editor’s Note: Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, President and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is included in this list.

What determines power?  What sustains power? How does one attain power? How valuable is power? Can one has power without having a lot of money? How many types of power are there? The Forbes' lists are interesting in many ways; they are also informative and instructive. What is the role of the media in attaining, sustaining and losing power?  How powerful is the media?

WE AT ONEWORLD PROGRESSIVE INSTITUTE, INC.,  ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ AND SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH YOUR DAUGHTERS AND YOUR SONS.  WE BELIEVE THAT RECOGNIZING WOMEN IN POSITIONS OF POWER IS A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.  WE ALSO BELIEVE IT IS IMPORTANT THAT BOTH OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY THAT IS BEHIND THIS LIST.  WE HAVE STARTED BELOW WITH A LIST OF FIVE WOMEN WHO WE BELIEVE PAVED THE WAY IN THOUSANDS OF WAYS.  WE ALSO NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHY THEY ARE IMPORTANT TO WOMEN'S HISTORY.

FOR GENERATIONS WOMEN HAVE BEEN THE BACKBONE OF MANY POWERFUL MEN. TODAY THEY CAN BE IN FRONT AND BE ACKNOWLEDGED AS LEADERS IN THEIR OWN RIGHTS.  ALTHOUGH MANY WOMEN HAVE BEEN LEADERS FOR DECADES, THEY WERE MOSTLY CONSIDERED THE EXCEPTION.  MANY WHO TOOK CREDIT FOR THEIR WORK KNOW BETTER.  SOME OF OUR PHENOMINAL WOMEN LEADERS WERE:

1. Marie Curie –  Physicist and Chemist  ( November 7, 1867 – July 4, 1934) French-Polish, famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity.

2. Indira GhandiPrime Minister of India for three consecutive terms (Nov. 19, 1917 – Oct. 31, 1984).  Prime Minister Ghandi was assassinated.

3. Dr. Maria Montessori Physician and Educator.  Founder of the Montessori  Early Childhood Education Method (1870 – 1952)-  The first woman to have earned a degree as a Doctor of Medicine in Italy in 1896, Maria Montessori's mission to improve children's education began in the slums of Rome in 1907, and continued throughout her lifetime.

4. Golda Meir – Educator and Politician (May 31, 1898 – Dec. 8, 1978) Ms. Meir was one of the founders of the state of Israel.  She became Prime Minister of Israel March 17, 1969 – 1974.

5. Margaret ThatcherFirst and only female Prime minister of Great Britain (born Oct. 13, 1925, Mrs Thatcher is still alive) In 1947 she earned a degree in Chemistry from Oxford University and worked as a research chemist.  She then studied law and in 1953 became a Barrister (shows how brilliant she was – chemistry and the law). Later she entered politics.  She held various leadership positions in the Conservative Party before being elected Prime  Minister of Britain in May 1979.  She remained in power until Nov. 28, 1990 when she was forced to resign.  Her very conservative position on social and economic issues led to her becoming very unpopular in England.  She was known as “the Iron Lady.”

What Does Dr. MLK, Jr. Mean to You?

Each month, we pose a question to the OneLISC family, and share the responses reflecting our diverse range of voices and backgrounds. To mark Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 92nd birthday, this month’s Reflections from the Field consider his life and work and his legacy today. The reflections register anger and dismay and exhaustion, but also hope, power and a commitment to keep working, to keep exerting good, strong pressure to shape our moral universe.

These Nonprofits Give Small Businesses What They Need to Survive and Thrive

So much goes into the relationship between small businesses and the nonprofit business development organizations (BDOs) that are dedicated to supporting them and helping them grow. The three BDOs profiled here, longtime LISC partners, have gone above and beyond to help entrepreneurs survive the COVID-19 pandemic. They know that the wellbeing of small businesses means jobs preserved, goods and services are accessible to the community, and local economies have a better chance of weathering the pandemic-borne recession.
