One Woman Feature
It isn’t always the high profile headline acts of leadership that inspire us the most. Sometimes it’s the simple, courageous vision and action of one woman doing something she found inspiring or had a lasting impact on others
Phyllis SantaMaria – a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala in the 1960s. Five decades later, the original women’s weaving project she put in place has left a legacy of empowerment that continues to lift the whole community.
Viviane Morris – Moving into her third age and newly retired, she set up a chapter in Yorkshire for the newly formed Women’s Equality Party. No previous experience in politics or organising before, but a sense of rightness about equality, particularly for the emerging generation of school kids.
Helen Walbey – an entrepreneur and women’s enterprise champion for the Welsh government, Helen is the only woman to run a motorcycle scrap yard in the UK. She taught herself engineering and is a fearless champion for the feminine way of doing business in a highly masculine world.
Bernhard Plesher – yes a man made it into our feature. After setting up his new enterprise, Bernhard was stressed and losing sleep worrying about staff. Then he decided to try a different way and empowered his workforce, inspired by the heart-centred way women are able to run businesses. Now his work life is a joy to him and his turnover is over 100 million euros.
Valerie Humphreys – Retired guesthouse owner & grandmother took on young Denis, namesake of her deceased husband. A penniless porter on the Gorilla trail in Uganda, Denis had a dream of becoming a doctor and Valerie made that happen. For the last five years, 81 year old Valerie has been fundraising to put him through medical school.
