Recently I watched the movie “Hidden Figures” for the second time, and was again impressed by the achievements of the extraordinary African- American women featured in the film.

“Two words have motivated entire movements,” said Dana Cowin, former editor-in-chief of Food & Wine Magazine, pointing to #MeToo and #TimesUp, most recently. “I watched the power of those two words, and I thought, ‘what are my two words?’”
