In this episode of The PurposeGirl Podcast, I'm joined by New York Times bestselling author, Marie Benedict. I devoured several of her books and was a fan of hers before she reached out to be on The PurposeGirl Podcast, and I’m thrilled and honored to bring her to you.
Marie digs deep into the lives of historical women, sees them as superheroes, and shows us their “origin stories” and how they made such important contributions to our modern world. She asks how we’re living with their legacy, often without even realizing it. Marie has an abiding passion for history, and for uncovering the unanswered questions of history and unheard voices.
In this episode, and in her books, Marie:
- points out that women have been making critical contributions to all aspects of our society – science, philanthropy, politics, business, etc. – even if many people don’t know about it.
- argues that if these historical figures can do the amazing things that they did under such challenging conditions, with such odds stacked against them, then we, today, can do great things as well.
- hopes to inspire readers to fight against the marginalization that occurred in the past, and continues today.
- describes her purpose as showing how other women have a purpose, and she addresses the life purpose of the women in her books.
