Quote of the Day

"Being raised in Arkansas, I was always aware that the invisible glass ceiling for women in this region was thicker than in the rest of the country, but seeing your percentage of women profiled year after year, I am beginning to wonder if the proverbial glass ceiling is more a composite of steel than sand. . . .

"Today’s women are movers and shakers. They not only bring home the bacon and cook it, too, they are actively involved in Northwest Arkansas’ community and its growth. They wear no less than four or five hats, and that alone is a unique juggling act of achievement. The women of this region need more recognition than you are affording us."

--Sallyann J. Brown, "Women's Achievements Not Reflected," Letter to the Editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
