Lifetime has a new series - The Conversations with Amanda de Cadenet - and I am so excited about it. The concept of the series is to present:
"...an honest, authentic and raw view of the shared issues affecting women today[.] Each episode of 'The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet' will feature de Cadenet having powerful and in-depth interviews with some of the world’s most famous and influential women, including, among others,
New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand,
and Gabby Sidibe.
Together with de Cadenet in the comfort of her or their own homes, they -- many for the first time publicly -- will tackle a wide variety of topics universal to all females, including sexuality, body image, career and finances, relationships, love and loss, politics, human rights, transformation, breakthrough and perseverance.
'The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet' will also feature 'Women on the Street' segments in which women from all walks of life also reveal their personal feelings about their lives and the world today." (Lifetime)
It appears that everything that I hope to accomplish with this blog - empower and inspire women - is being done within this series; the women are talking about issues that matter to us, issues that we rarely discuss with one another, issues that we need to talk about.
The first chapter in the series ranges in subject matter and it is packed with exceptional advice and words of encouragement. While, there is so much that could be extracted from the first episode, I will conclude with one notable quote made by Zoe Saldana on the subject of men: "They're extraordinary creatures and sometimes we deprive them of their own battles...They have their own stories. They have their own nightmares, and women we have the power of the word and we can make or brake a man, which is a sentence. To abuse that power is to make you just as crippled as the men who abuse women..."
