Lipstick Leadership: Women as Iron Fists - Shalini Kantayya's Story!

"When I was a little girl, my mother told me that women are like an iron fist in a velvet glove...which meant that we don't have to speak loud, shout, or be rude...we just have to be solid and strong on the inside to get things done. My mother, very softly and sweetly, never takes NO for an answer. As a filmmaker, I need a lot of people to help me get a story told. The ability to speak sweetly and appreciately while still getting my ideas across with authority has been an advantage in making films that make a social statement...thank you, Mom!"

- Shalini Kantayya, Activist/Film Director, http://www.adropoflife.com/
