Whether in our personal or professional life, there are women who have become very impactful role models for many of us.

They’ve become symbols of power, inspiration, and nurturing forces in cultures around the world.

Historically, even women have had an inspirational impact during different generations and eras when men were most dominant.

In this episode, callers share their personal stories about the impact women have made in their lives and in the community. We also talk with an expert about the work that’s being done in the Religion and Public Life Program at Rice University to amplify women's voices in conversations about religion's role in the world, where so often men tend to be at the forefront of public discussions about religion.
