I’m Ann Douglas, and I believe in encouraging young people to be shameless.
When I was younger, I was a member of the “Good Girl Club.” It took me forty-two years to relinquish my membership, to realize that it’s better to be outspoken than to be bullied into silence, better to be part of a group that’s working for change than to feel alone and scared.
Investing in Shameless means investing in the next generation. I’m proud to take my place in the Hall of Shameless, because investing in a better world is nothing to be ashamed about.
