Welcome to PIP Youth, the next generation of women on the rise!

It's been a whirlwind summer for us, criss-crossing the nation, meeting and photographing and hearing the stories of America's women in positions of leadership.  The proof is in the portraits, and if you haven't visited our Portraits or Stories pages recently, you will have missed a whole new wave of inspirational PIP women.

Now for some exciting news. We are thrilled to announce the PIP YOUTH project.  This branch of our work is an organic development of our belief that role models play a crucial part in empowering young women, and the interrelationship between older and younger generations is the key to sustaining and growing this empowerment.  To that effect, we are asking our celebrated politicians to nominate young women who show great promise, courage, intelligence, perseverance, and vision.  And happily, our first three PIP Youths are viewable in full here.

I think women tend to listen first and react later. I think they are more compassionate and see people as individuals.
