A Catalyst for Change - Shirley Chisholm

A Catalyst for Change - Shirley Chisholm

Another bonus episode in celebration of Women's History Month.

This week I am diving into the life and presidential run of Shirley Chisholm. Born in Brooklyn during the Great Depression, Shirley would buck convention over and over as she broke barriers and championed women's rights.

And while she came back into the conversation during Kamala Harris' presidential run, there is so much more to the story.
