Americans now live 30 years longer than they did a century ago. We need to reinvent aging, infusing this gift of time with purpose and respect.
What do I search for in life? Those people who want to repair the world, not tear it apart.
She Votes! Podcast: Hosted by Ellen Goodman and Lynn Sherr
100 years ago, the 19th Amendment was ratified. But American women’s battle for the ballot began long before that day in August—and continues, even to this day. Ellen joins her dear friend and fellow journalist Lynn Sherr to tell the complex history of the women’s suffrage movement, from the first demands to speak on public matters by antislavery activists in 1837, through the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention for women’s rights, to the drama of the final passage in 1920 and beyond. Listen to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify or anywhere else you listen!
Ellen has witnessed and been a part of the stunning ways families, women lives, the media and values have been transformed over the turbulent past generation.
“Ellen speaks with the confidence of a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and the openness and warmth of a good friend. She has the remarkable ability to put people at ease even as she discusses the sensitive topics of illness and dying.”
