Huffington Post
An op-ed written after our first Report's release for Huff Post Los Angeles by Lindy DeKoven, the former chair of the California Commission on the Status of Women. As Geena Davis (the current chair of the Commission) noted at the release of the 2013 Report: Facts from the Report and an outcry of public support not only saved the Commission, but expanded its focus to include girls as well as women.
