Marie Wilson

Wilson is also co-creator of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day and author of Closing the Leadership Gap: Why Women Can and Must Help Run the World (Viking, 2004).

In light of Wilson's labors, it's fitting that her organization is honoring her 70th birthday on Labor Day by offering an opportunity to help midwife a new, more balanced era that includes representation "of the women, by the women, and for the women."

Birthday greetings and donations can be sent through Facebook Causes http://birthdays.causes.com/wishes/19336 or donate $7, $70, $700 or $7000 in honor of Marie's 70th birthday to The White House Project's scholarship fund: https://secure2.convio.net/twhp/site/Donation2?df_id=1960&1960.donation=form1&JServSessionIdr004=7arj7aj061.app207a
