Rosie The Riveter.jpgWelcome to Shadow Cabinet, one writer’s quest to interview women on the front lines of the fight for human rights in today’s United States.

There’s so much information – heartbreaking, infuriating and inspiring – coming at us hourly after only nine days of the country’s 45th president. We all need to be calling our representatives, signing petitions and putting our money where our mouth is, but I also¬†feel a need for something both bigger and smaller than that: weekly conversation. I hope you’ll join me here for brief, weekly chats with inspiring women who have suggestions to share about how we can make a difference alongside them.
