Sue Rock Originals – The Story to Inspire a Generation – presented by Ms. Marlo Thomas!
And the Sue Rock Originals story was chosen to be one of them! This is one extraordinary event and I am through the moon about it!
If you are of a certain age you may know about Marlo Thomas from her Mondays with Marlo series in the Huffington Post. But to a huge number of women (and men) she is so much more….
Growing up in New York City in the 1970′s, I was inspired by so many things. The beginning of integration, the development of the UN, Sesame Street! And tied into that were the multitude of programs which expressed the ever changing times. Shows like Room 222, Family Affair, Julia and most famously THAT GIRL.
Produced by the daughter of the amazing entertainer and family man Danny Thomas, Marlo Thomas set the stage for whole new type of girl. Set in my hometown, this girl was charting her own course with her own mind, her own goals and a great sense of style. (AND she was an actress!) I loved the show!
As time went on, Ms. Thomas was moved by her fans response to her character to create a powerful network of women. She spoke at women’s events, encourged organizing on many level and created the powerful production “Free to be You and ME!” which just celebrated its 40th Anniversary.
It Ain’t Over . . . Till It’s Over introduces us to sixty amazing women who are proving that it’s never too late to live out a dream. An amazing book (which contributes ALL of the royalties to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital!) chronicles the stories of these women to inspire and encourage people of all ages!
