Ani Talks About Pete Seeger

Ani wrote a little something about the lessons she learned from Pete Seeger on the Wall Street Journal blog.  We are attaching a excerpt below.  If you would like to read it in it's entirety please go here.

"I once watched him do a press conference backstage at Madison Square Garden on the occasion of his 90th birthday celebration. One reporter rattled off a long history of his outstanding accomplishments and then asked, “Can you tell me, Mr. Seeger, what you are most proud of?” There was a pause and then Pete responded, “I stayed married to the best woman I ever met for 55 years and we raised 3 children and 6 grandchildren.” It struck me as a radical feminist flip of the script to hold up family and a history of positive personal relationships above worldly achievements.

Pete taught me you are never too old or too male to be a radical feminist."
