The commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act taking place this week at the LBJ Library in Austin, Texas, reminds me of my own somewhat distant history with President Johnson, my first big professional break, and of the excitement that comes with having your whole life ahead of you and thinking anything is possible.

Joining hundreds of women from around the world at the United Nations Conference on the Status of Women proved both inspiring and enlightening. The selfless work being done across the globe in behalf of women’s rights and empowerment often flies under the radar screen of media attention, but the reality is that these efforts may well be, in the final analysis, what will save the world. Each of us who are free and safe have an obligation to do our part to ensure a better future for our sisters.
