|“One year ago I stood onstage before 2,500 people and heard my name
called as a Glamour Woman of the Year. As I watched the other women
being honored that night – including a scientist, an athlete, four
college presidents and a writer – it struck me how different we were.
And I realized that while we were a multi-textured tapestry of
womanhood, the thread binding us all was made of courage.”
– Marianne Pearl, 2007 Woman of the Year
