Kirsten was on The Today Show yesterday to discuss her effort to inspire, as she puts it, a "new generation of Rosie the Riveters" and to get women off the sidelines so they can fulfill their potential as economic drivers of the new economy.
Women are such an economic engine in our country and largely untapped. Women are graduating half of the college degrees, more than half of the advanced degrees, and women-owned small businesses are some of the fastest growing in the country. We need women at the forefront. [...]
We need women to understand their voices are necessary because they have good ideas on the business and political side and when they are at the table, the outcomes are better. The decisions have a broader viewpoint. Women have a different perspective on how to solve problems. We need their ability to bring people together, especially in Washington...the more women at the table, the better it will be.
