Melinda Gates & other women of influence.

I read few of the stories of the 50 Women to Watch from the Wall Street Journal. Some inspiring stuff in there. I really enjoyed the article on Melinda Gates. They really give her some high praise on her ability to mix humility, grace and gravitas. I was particularly struck by the following:

Nor does Ms. Gates, born a Roman Catholic, publicly discuss her faith. Her speech in Toronto, though, challenged anyone who would put dogma ahead of AIDS prevention. "In the fight against AIDS, condoms save lives," she said. "If you oppose the distribution of condoms, something is more important to you than saving lives."
