For Women’s History Month, FunTimes Magazine asked 14 of the Philadelphia region’s influential women to share the stories of their lives, and ponder intersectionality around women’s issues. Through a series of five questions, these women reflected on their ambitions and obstacles, how they transcended perceived gender limitations, and, more importantly, the roots of the ingenuity that allowed them to believe in their visions, and the muses that encouraged them to live their dreams.

These real-life sentiments resonate the continued concerns for equality among all women.

The 14 NJ/Philadelphia region’s women recognized are: 

  • Joanne Jones  – National Communications Director of The Mothers of Professional Basketball Players
  • Lisa Forrest – Philadelphia Fire Captain & President, The Club Valiants, Inc.
  • Catherine Hicks – Publisher, Philadelphia Sunday SUN
  • Donna L. Allie, PhD – President/CEO, Team Clean, Inc.
  • The Honorable Sheila Woods-Skipper -President Judge of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas
  • Melony Roy, Social Media Director – KYW NewsRadio 1060
  • Rev. Dr. Lorina Marshall-Blake – President of the Independence Blue Cross Foundation
  • Dr. Sekela Coles, PhD – Councilwoman, 7th District of Upper Darby & Professor of Business, Harcum College and Delaware County Community College.
  • Syreeta Scott – Owner, Duafe Holistic Hair Care & Sable Collective Boutique
  • Tina Sloan Green, M.Ed., President/Co-Founder, Black Women in Sports Foundation (BWSF)
  • Weatta Frazier Collins, Philanthropist/Founder of The Legacy Exists, non-profit scholarship fund in memory of her father, Heavyweight boxing Champion, “Smokin’” Joe Frazier
