For decades, women have fought for equal access to these high-paying careers, but the industry remains 97% male-dominated.

"I am grateful for everyone who is listening to our experiences. I hope that adding my voice to the chorus of those who are finally speaking out will shed light on why it is so difficult, and why so many of us have waited so long. Men sexually harassed because they could. Women are talking today because, in this new era, we finally can." Salma Hayek SALMA HAYEK NY Times article on Harvey Weinstein https://nyti.ms/2nXntXL

Take care of YOU, first

Jada Pinkett Smith In the video below Jada Pinkett Smith speaks about the importance of  balance and self care with her family. It's an inspiration for women. I love the way Jada communicated the message to her loved ones. What's interesting and powerful about her message is that she was able to share her perspective and relate to her loved ones as both a mom and  daughter.

I wish Nikkia blessings on her journey emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually on her path of wellness. Meet Nikkia this is HERstory...  “Trust the process”is one of the mantra I have come to rely on from a young age. At the age of 17, it was discovered I have Lupus after years of constant sickness. At first it was scary and I did not understand how to find a balance. Then I got older, started a family and realized I need to trust the process of Hinduism.

Then I began to see that daily practicing helped me physically and spiritually. Practicing gave
