Walking the Talk - A Conversation with a Friend
I was talking with a good friend the other day about men and their often horrible treatment of women through the ages. Then she said she hadn't known this was one of my passions so I explained.
Back in the 70's and 80's, I was on the street marching in Denver for women's rights and reproductive freedom.
I became the only man working in a women's health center and went to work never knowing if that would be a day the demonstrators became violent.
As computers began to enter the workplace, I realized no one was teaching women how to use them which disadvantaged them at work. So, I became the first person in Denver teaching classes solely for women so they wouldn't be left out.
Today I support an organization in Africa working to rescue young women from genital mutilation and other horrific maltreatment and uplifting girls to realize their full potential.
I've been walking what I talk for a long time I told my friend. This is what I do and I am passionate about living my life walking the talk. I treasure the company of others who do too.
I'm glad you're here.
