#Repost #regram #repost #regrann from @shecompassdotcom #astronaut #PeggyWhitson made her first #TV appearance
today since her historic record-setting return to Earth in September. At 288 days, Whitson has spent more time in #space than any other American. This morning she joined #CBSNews to share the wisdom she’s acquired throughout her life and career, reflecting on a note she’s written to her 9-year-old self. In a heartfelt letter to “dear younger me,” Whitson talked about the impact of watching Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin take their first walk on the moon, noting that “seeing it with your own eyes made it real, believable, and achievable. That moment in time planted a seed of inspiration in you. Now it’s up to you to nourish that seed and grow it into more than just a dream.”
Whitson did just that, becoming the first woman to command the #InternationalSpaceStation, and the female worldwide #recordholder for time spent walking in space. Only two days after #nationalstemday , a day dedicated to inspiring interest in #science, technology, engineering and math, Whitson’s letter to her younger self underscores the goal of encouraging more #women to pursue careers in a scientific field. Take a look at Dr. Whitson’s incredible achievements in action, and share her story with anyone inspired to reach for the stars: http://bit.ly/2hkCCMO  #womenintech #womeninspace #womeninscience #womeninstem #ladiescode #ladies #blogger #blog #blogpost #space #spacestation #nasa #captain @cbsnews

#Repost #regram from @shecompassdotcom In the wake of hundreds of #women speaking out against #harassment and sexual violence, the timing couldn’t be more perfect for the arrival of this week’s #varietyinclusionsummit. The event featured a host of #celebrity speakers and focused on
#diversity and #genderequality in #media and #entertainment. Featured keynote panelists included #actress #ChelseaHandler and #activist #AnitaHill, who made headlines in 1991 when she accused then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. Handler noted that “the daily grind of having to stick up for #genderparity can become draining, so it’s nice when we can all come together in a place where there are stories that are inspiring and change people’s trajectories of how businesses and media are handled.” On the issue of sexual harassment in the current climate, even after her landmark US Senate #testimony over 20 years ago, Hill noted that she is troubled by the challenges women face even today when coming forward to report abuse but notes that inroads have been made since she spoke out in 1991. “It still takes about 30 women to come forward before one #woman is believed,” she said. “We are making #change. It’s not instant and there won’t be one tipping point, there will be many. Our word is as valuable as the word of our abusers.” And Hill still encourages victims to come forward, saying, “if you have any kind of status that allows you to make change, use it.” #bethechange #warriorwoman #forwardprogress #sisterhood #quotes #womenempowerment #empoweringwomen #blogger #blogpost #makeachange #makeadifference

#Repost #regram from @shecompassdotcom It was the ultimate test of #sisterhood. Two #women this week proved that #strongwomen fiercely face rogue waves together and swim beside one another as long as necessary. What should have been for #jenniferappel and #tashafuiava an 18-day relaxing trip from Honolulu to Tahiti quickly became an excruciating, 5-month odyssey that made them each an #ultimatefighter for their lives. Enduring 40-50-foot waves, a failed engine, and packs of tiger fish whom Appel said “decided to use our vessel to teach their young how to hunt,” the #ladies did their best to survive as their #boat drifted 900 miles off the southeast coast of Japan. After 98 days of distress signals that went unanswered and the likelihood, according to Fuiava, that they would not “survive another 24 hours,” the pair was finally rescued by the #uscoastguard. Blowing kisses to her rescuers, Appel said about her ordeal, “there is true humility to wondering if today is your last day, if tonight is your last night.
