In October 1991, Anita Hill made women’s rights infamous again. Check out October 24, 2011 issue of The Nation magazine and read the articles about Ms. Hill’s struggle…and the struggle that continues today. If you don’t have an Anita Hill story yourself – which too many women do – then read about Anita. And read her new book, Reimagining Equality: Stories of Gender, Race, and Finding Home.

And if you think we’ve come far enough, read The Chronicle of Philanthropy‘s 09-22-11 article about CEO pay. The pay of female CEOs still lags that of men, according to the 2011 GuideStar compensation report.
