Photo Credit and Quotes from Billboard.com https://www.billboard.com/photos/8462926/photos-billboard-cover 

Billboard.com wrote a great piece on Women In Music about African American Female Music Executives that are essential to the music industry. Juliette Jones,  Ethiopia Habtemariam and Sylvia Rhone have shown strength through resilience, strong leadership skills and continuous work ethic. Below there were some inspiring quotes from each woman that I hope enlighten you as the reader.














 Juliette Jones the Executive VP of Atlantic Records

“It’s important, as women, that we learn to use our power to support each other, plus be comfortable in asking questions and voicing our career desires”
 Ethiopia Habtemariam President of Motown Records

"We need to be even more supportive and collaborative. I probably could have done more outreach myself; people don’t fully understand what you’re going through unless you do. I’m making a real effort to be the polar opposite of what some of my experiences have been.”
Sylvia Rhone President of Epic Records

"One of the keys is to always be your best self."

Me Too Movement: ''“No one can adequately convey the trauma of a woman who has been harassed. In the past, so many women have felt compelled to keep silent for fear of losing their jobs. The toll that kind of secret takes on their lives is immeasurable. Everybody should be made to feel safe in their work environment. This movement has allowed women to speak their truths and reclaim their power. It’s given women a voice and hopefully stops the institutionalization of discrimination and sexual harassment.”
-- Sylvia Rhone

On the evening of August 27,2015 I was attacked by my ex boyfriend. I was feeling overwhelmed at his house because of some information he mentioned to me. It made me feel uncomfortable. I wanted to leave. He got upset that I wanted to leave. I told him he didn't care. He slapped me in the face with the remote control.I cleaned up in the bathroom & he came and got me. We laid down back to back to each other. I was upset with him about a text message a girl sent to him. There was verbal abuse for sure. He leaned over and punched me in th
