Generations
In the past thirty years, women have entered the workforce and educational arenas in record numbers. We have, in some cases, more freedom to determine. None of this happened in a vacuum.

We owe much gratitude to the generations that came before us for the doors that they have opened. We have much to learn from their experiences. And we owe it to them to continue the conversation—to talk to them about our perspectives, based on what the world was like for us growing up.

The goal of this section is to spark precisely this intergenerational dialogue. You’ll hear from luminaries such as Nobel Laureate Shirin Ebadi, reflecting on what’s changed for women in Iran over the past few decades. You’ll read beautiful stories from young women, such as Australian Nina Cullen, reflecting on their mothers’ legacies. You’ll see beautiful artwork, such as the photography of Colombian Margarita Serrano, speaking to the differences between generations.

What have you learned from your mother? What lessons would you want to pass down to your daughters and sons? How is our generation different from those that came before? How is it similar?
