Today’s Extraordinary Women Radio Interview is with a Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame Inductee – Jill Tietjen! Jill and I share a huge love for telling women’s stories. In fact, Jill has written a whole book about it!
Her book, Her Story: A Timeline of Women Who Changed America is a one-of-a-kind illustrated timeline highlighting the awesome, varied, and often unrecognized contributions of American women throughout U.S. history, beginning in the 1500s and spanning all the way through 2011.
I’m guessing most of us have seen Hidden Figures… Such a great movie! What I’ve often wondered after seeing this movie – is how many other untold stories are there out there, that we don’t know. Well, Jill has made a lifetime of uncovering stories like this – making sure women’s stories are told and shared – long before Hidden Figures launched.
You’re going to love Jill and her story! Jill is not only a best selling, award winning author, she is a national speaker for women advocacy and an electrical engineer. After 40 years in the electric utility industry, she took the leap to focus on women’s advocacy – all around the world. She blogs for Huffington Post and has more Her Story books underway.
