When I wrote “What’s a Girl Worth?” on Monday I couldn’t anticipate the widespread, profound response it received. It resonated with women, and also men, who had struggled to believe their own worth; it struck men, and also women, who realized the impact of their attitudes; it stirred compassion and righteous anger across genders.
But my stories are not so terribly special. The biggest difference between mine and those tucked into the heart of the person next to you in line at the grocery store is that I tell them. I have learned silence is deathly to the heart– speaking truth brings life.
