Ms. Foundation CEO puts Spotlight on Needs of Women and Girls
Teresa Younger has been renewing the conversation about feminism since becoming president and CEO of the Ms. Foundation for Women 18 months ago. She has launched a 52,000-mile “listening tour” and has made appearances around the country, including one Thursday in Santa Fe.
“We have to provide leadership and strive to make everyone completely uncomfortable until we have women at the table where everybody is comfortable,” Younger said before her remarks at a legislative reception at the Rio Chama Steakhouse. The event was organized by NewMexicoWomen.Org, a program of the New Mexico Community Foundation designed to address issues affecting the state’s women and girls. . .
