Grantees of the Compton Foundation's #womenpeacesecurity initiative met for a conference today in DC. I'm sitting behind Eleanor Smeal, president and a cofounder of the Feminist Majority Foundation and former president of the National Organization for Women. Among other inspiring thought leaders/policymakers/journalists/ storytellers brainstorming and collaborating in the room was Melanne Verveer, the executive director of the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security who served as the first United States Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women's Issues and directed the Office of Global Women's Issues & so much more. It was an unforgettable, life changing day. Thank you Compton Foundation!
