My dad remains one of the most important advisers in my life — he has always given me solid guidance when I need it (never unsolicited) and his values are ones I have tried to emulate in my own life. I love watching my own toddler daughter begin to admire my husband in this way. Both men recognize the importance of empowering women, and that means raising their daughters with that idea in mind.
This weekend on Motto we are featuring ten women on what their fathers have taught them. How about you? Are you celebrating Father’s Day?
‘His need to uncover the world’s mysteries was infectious’
‘I promise you: I will not let you down’
‘He recognized my enthusiasm and encouraged me’
‘The truth needs no defense’
Fathers are considered ‘secondary’ caregivers and granted less paid time off, the charge says
Never run out of things to say
‘Sandy Hook truthers have terrorized my family’
‘When you look at Latinas who are succeeding in Hollywood, they’re super thin’
‘Sadly, you could not make this up’
Perfect for summer mornings
