WAVe Presents: Women Who Inspire

To mark the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in 2020, we asked Venable professionals and friends to share their thoughts on the women who have most inspired their personal and professional lives. Among those our colleagues chose to highlight are legal powerhouses like Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Elena Kagan; women who have made extraordinary strides in the political realm, such as Nancy Pelosi and Madeleine Albright; and lifelong activists like Eleanor Roosevelt and the fearless Harriet Tubman. Our participants also named writers, poets, publishers, philanthropists, adventurers, and even grandmothers as the women who most changed their world view. All told, it’s a fascinating compilation of female gamechangers who have made the world a better place – may they inspire you as much as they do us.
