Writing Women Back into History

March is Women’s History Month and this year’s theme is “Writing Women Back into History.” Honored to be the guest speaker at West Point’s Women’s History month celebration, I had an unique opportunity to share my story and the genius of Porcelain on Steel: Women of West Point’s Long Gray Line with a diverse audience of cadets, officers, staff and faculty on the banks of the Hudson River in New York on 26 March 2010.

Here are my remarks “Know your limits and then ignore them.”

    Awesome speech, Donna! Inspiring and truths spoken on so many levels. I really look forward to reading Porcelain on Steel. Yes, young women need a different kind of role model than popular media represents. I'll be encouraging my 17 yo daughter to read the book too.
