“These women have faced almost insurmountable obstacles, but they have a tremendous ability to adapt. They are the voice of the ‘Women of Kireka’ jewelry business and are making it all possible.”

Ruthie Rosenberg Katonah Book Club

“If you are truly passionate about a cause, motivation to act comes easy. Time that never seemed available appears. And after you take the first step, the adrenaline kicks in and your ambition to help is accelerated.”

Phyllis TherouxPhyllis Theroux

“As I got out of bed this morning I thought about the amazing worth and power of the imagination, how it literally determines everything: one’s ability to love life, make a living, understand others, and -as a writer-create a story. When the imagination dims, we do too.”

Gloria FeldtGloria Feldt

“But what really blew me away researching “No Excuses” was to find that it was no longer external barriers holding women back. Women can now raise money as well as men, are trusted by the voters more than men, and when they run, they are statistically as likely to win.”

“I would like to leave people a little better than I found them and I’d like to leave the world better than I found it. If I could do that I would feel like I had a successful life.”

“Great women came into my life and mentored me and they have helped me find many ways to heal my body, mind and spirit. Hopefully, I can pass it on to others.”

“We are absolutely changing lives. Look at the girls at our school. Last year they didn’t speak; they were shut down. Now a year later they speak English, read, write, and do math. They could be kids anywhere.”

Elizabeth Murray

“The artist makes a difference. It takes a lot of courage to be creative and then to live that life. You have to believe in yourself and know that it’s all worthwhile.”

“I’ve always walked between two worlds–the inner city and the hallowed halls of Harvard; my black and white friends; Wall Street and the social entrepreneurs I give money to. I try to bring strange bedfellows together to make things better for family and community.” Photo: Tony Deifill

Amy ErnstAmy Ernst

“It’s chaos in every direction; I truly don’t know how these incredible women wake up every day and keep fighting to survive. I can say I’m helping them, but in truth, despite being in the midst of such suffering and pain, they’re renewing my faith in the strength and spirit of humanity.”


Rebecca TraisterRebecca Traister

“…when most women I know cry, it’s out of anger, frustration or exhaustion…It’s a way of expressing fury, and the reason that fury comes out in tears I’m sure has a lot to do with the way we’ve long been conditioned not to express our fury in other ways –not to yell or throw things.”


Angie ChauAngie Chau

“Write and keep at it; as you never want to stop growing as a human being, never stop growing as a writer. Be patient with yourself. ..If a girl who arrived in this country with no English can prevail, so can you.”



Susan BurtonSusan Burton

“I never thought I would have ended up at Harvard or a ‘Top Ten Hero’ or have built an organization like ‘A New Way of Life.’ I just wanted to help. I wanted at end of the day to have done something good.”

As 2011 begins, it’s worth taking a moment to reflect on some of the ideas and words of wisdom from our EYE Interviews and the women who were kind enough to share their views during the past months. You may find inspiration or food for thought here for the New Year…

Vendela VidaVendela Vida

“After we left the realm of school, we missed the constant conversations about literature. Starting ‘The Believer’ was a way to continue to have those conversations—both with each other, and with our writers and readers—about books old and new, and about artists and thinkers…”



Sally DominguezSally Dominguez

“I never set out intentionally to be an inventor, but I have a constant curiosity about why things are the way they are. I’m always seeing unconventional solutions to everyday problems…The excitement and ability to change ways people live inspires me.”


Sandy Foster

“It’s a balm for the spirit to have a place where I’m free to do what I want, like a tree house you run to as a kid and pull up the ladder once inside. Any able-bodied person can build their own sanctuary, providing they have the location, money, time, and tools to do it.”



Shannon HayesShannon Hayes

“I remember one bright, clear August day, standing on a ladder painting the top of someone’s pergola, marveling that I was a newly minted ‘Dr. Hayes,’ and while my grad school peers were settling into their new offices, I was out under a cloudless blue sky, painting for $10/hr. I decided that I had the better deal.”



Cynthia AguilarCynthia Aquilar

“‘KEEP PADDLIN’ !!! Never stop! When things are going bad, there’s something good to come. It’s all about how you handle it. That’s what makes you.”
