This week, Marissa Mayer made history for the second and third time. Her first stint as a history maker was back in 1999 when she became the first female engineer for a then-small start-up called Google. While at Google, she climbed the ranks to become the Vice President of Local, Maps, and Location Services.
For her second time in the history books, fast forward 13 years to Monday, July 16th. On this day, Yahoo announced that the 37 year-old executive of Google was to take the helm of its shaky ship – the corporation’s 5th CEO in just 5 years. Womens groups cheered with delight that this young executive was adding to just a handful of female CEOs in Silicon Valley – a group that includes Meg Whitman, chief executive of Hewlett-Packard; Virginia M. Rometty, head of I.B.M.; and Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook.

Last night I came across a very nice gentleman. After few exchanges, I handed him my card. He asked if I was a feminist. I asked, what’s your definition of a feminist? He responded by saying “women who are for women progression, justice and rights and so on.” I responded by saying YES, and I think everyone should too and he agrees. He asked do I believe Secretary Hillary Rodham should run in 2016. The answer is I love Hillary, she has fought for all of us; however I do not believe she should run.

I’m a firm believer that everything in life is a reflection of the conversations that exist between people, groups, communities, and society at large. Things – whether tangible or not – have their origins in language, exist in cultures, and permeate society through conversation. This is evident in fashion trends, viral videos, binding acts such as marriage, projects like the World Wide Web, and even the space station. Common denominator? Language. A thought becomes a word and gains exponential traction by way of conversations. The most powerful channel we have to distribute these conversations is the media. Particularly the news media.
