Avengers of the Week | Guy Raz, Hilde Lysiak, Wendy and Kelly Rexon, Hedy Lamarr, and Lisa Hendy
We’ve been hearing about so many inspiring Avengers of the Week that we are dedicating our entire weekend newsletter to amazing Avengers changing our world. Here are six GenderAvengers who caught our eye:
NPR Podcast creator, host, and editorial director Guy Raz created the gender-balanced How I Built This Summit and continues to grow his commitment to diversity and equal representation.
This 12-year-old journalist is an activist and commencement speaker with unwavering commitment to truth-telling and justice.
Captain Wendy Rexon and First Officer Kelly Rexon
A mother-daughter pilot team flying the LAX to ATL on Delta airlines, they have literally reached for the sky and inspired a flight school who wants to see more teams like them.
She was not only a film actress but also a developer of a radio guidance system that landed her in the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Hedy Lamarr showed that women can have a lighter side and be brilliant at the same time.
She became the first female chief ranger of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the busiest national park in the US, and she proves that women and girls are capable, both indoors and out.
These six #AvengersOfTheWeek span the fields of aviation, invention, journalism, entertainment & environmentalism, ultimately proving that all gender barriers can and should be knocked down. #GenderAvenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/six-avengers-of-the-week
