Please read what the FCC opinion on net neutrality looked like in 2010 when I wrote this blog. Actress Justine Bateman, Justin Bateman’s sister inspired me to write this blog when I was acting CEO of the Women’s Alliance for Media in D.C. Justine has been a fierce advocate on keeping the Internet open for the masses. I feel very powerless right now in this discussion in 2017. If you have ideas on what the FCC should do, please make your voice heard.

With the 2012 Gracie Awards having come and gone, I have the opportunity to reflect upon my time as interim president of the Gracie Awards and the Alliance for Women in Media in 2010. My time with the organization was truly the opportunity of a lifetime.
