Women's eNews Honors 21 Leaders for the 21st Century
including Remember the Women Institute's Executive Director
Women's eNews has announced the names of 21 individuals to be honored as Leaders for the 21st Century. This year's honorees are those who are "challenging the dominant narratives through words and deeds," with the theme of "making the facts be known." According to Women's eNews, "the interruption of the powerful narratives that shape and reinforce cultures is a primary requirement for the movement for the equality and equity of women and girls. This task is central to our mission....These 20 women and one man recast the stories of women and girls through words and deeds." Likewise, this is central to the mission of Remember the Women Institute.
Among the 21 Leaders is Dr. Rochelle G. Saidel, founder and executive director of Remember the Women Institute. Women's eNews honors her for commitment to giving Jewish women their place in Holocaust history. She is one of seven people who "give life to movements" and are "dedicated to improving lives of women and girls," according to Women's eNews. The recognition by Women's eNews of Dr. Saidel's work through Remember the Women Institute is significant, she said, because it draws awareness to women's experiences during the Holocaustóboth their suffering as women and their heroism. Remember the Women Institute is proud that our work has been acknowledged along with that of the worthy and impressive causes connected with the other twenty people named Leaders for the 21st Century.
