"Congratulations on a great job! Just getting out
there and deconstructing what the term economy means
to us is really so necessary in these times. I really
believe that as more of us know what the economy is
and how WE want it to operate, because we are the key
players in the economy, then it will change."

awareness on women's economic insecurity is ingenious
and will provide an excellent and educational resource

"The film was really all encompassing - I feel
that in less than 30 minutes you've provided clear information
that people can connect with, while helping women to
see their personal power/gifts/values used in their
many roles they undertake as active members of a family,
community, etc. Plus, the film left the viewer with
clear suggestions of what they can do to be more involved
with this issue. The web site and resource book are
excellent as well."
- Judy Williams
