"California Women are trailblazers in everything they do. They've made history by doing things their way. They didn't wait to be asked. They didn't wait to be invited. And they didn't wait to be told! They just did. I love people who just do." -MARIA SHRIVER
The California State Seal features Minerva, the Roman Goddess of Wisdom and Justice. According to mythology, with her helmet on, Minerva is a tireless warrior; without it she is the goddess of peace. Today, women are warriors in their everyday lives who nurture, protect and fight for the people and causes they hold dear. In her endeavors, Minerva embodies the qualities of courage, wisdom and strength.
"A woman should always be more concerned with standing up for what is right than making sure everyone likes her." -DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER, Radio Talk Show
