March is Women’s History Month

To kick off Women’s History Month joining me on today’s show on the phone from her office in Los Angeles is Women’s Rights attorney, Gloria Allred and we will be talking about her career and importance of Women’s Rights and the contribution she has made. In watching the documentary, “Seeing Allred I just love this quote and in my mind gives one insight into who she is. The question that was asked was, “What do you consider to be your most outstanding feature?” Gloria Allred’s answer, “”I feel it’s my commitment, my commitment to making social change. I feel that if each one of us made that sort of commitment to other women; support other women that we would have social change very quickly,”
