“A staunch supporter of women and the mother of a teenage daughter, Long gradually found herself discouraged with the way women are portrayed in media and the idea that we all have to be toothpick-thin to be appreciated and recognized. She also found herself discouraged by the competitive relationships between women. ‘What happened to us?’ she wondered. ‘We have to stop fighting with each other.’ Out of this frustration, Herstorynetwork.com was born, a website devoted to celebrating women and all of their contributions.”

What people are saying about HerstoryNetwork.com founder Mary Long’s speaking engagements:
I didn’t know what to expect but came away so energized about being a woman and standing together to accomplish anything. When you asked that question about “who would you rather work for – a male or a female boss” – I realized that I was hurting women all over by saying negative things about the female bosses in my life. I’ve vowed to stop that… it just reinforced to me the message about letting negativity go and thinking of the positive things going on that you talked about in your show. I’ve taken that message to heart and am concentrating on the good things in life.

“Mary was a guest speaker at my sister’s women’s club. I have never seen a speaker that left me with such a positive feeling about being a woman. I am so excited to have her come and speak at my women’s group. She is so enthused about all the women that she talks about, it definitely rubs off on the audience! Thanks again Mary, You are GREAT!!!!”

Mary, I can’t tell you enough how much I enjoyed ‘Woman to Woman’. You have so much enthusiasm for what you do that it’s inevitable that everyone in the audience gets excited and leaves wanting to make a change for the better. I loved the positive attitude that was generated towards the support of women.
