  • as a global community of women,

    與男性支持者和盟友集體力量的

  • and the men and the allies

    政策與政治。

  • who stand with us.

    變危險也意味著接受任何必要的風險,

    以創造一個無論在家或工作場所中,

  • to create a world where women and girls are safe

    女人和女孩都能感到安全的世界,

  • and respected,

    所有的選票都算數,

  • all votes counted,

    因為我們已為此做好準備了。

  • Because we're ready for this.

    我們比先前的任何世代 都做了更充足準備,

  • Now --

    那——

  • (Applause)

    (掌聲)

  • What a change this represents.

    這代表著什麼樣的改變啊。

  • Postmenopausal women like me, not that long ago,

    像我這種已過更年期的女子,

  • were considered useless

    在沒有很久之前,

  • or crazy.

    還被視為是無用之人

  • We were valued for caregiving and grandmothering --

    或是瘋子。

  • and I really love that part.

    我們會因為照顧及扮演 祖母角色而被珍視——

  • But we were pushed aside

    我很喜歡這個部分。

  • and expected to retire to our rocking chairs.

    但我們被推到一旁,

  • Women on the dangerous side of 60

    認為我們退休後回家坐搖椅就好了。

  • are not retiring.

    年齡六十歲的危險女性

  • We are rewiring --

    並沒有要退休。

  • (Applause)

    我們是在重整旗鼓——

  • taking all that we know and have done -- and that is a lot --

    (掌聲)

  • to redefine what age looks like,

    用我們所知道的一切和做過的 一切——那是非常大的量——

  • can do, can accomplish.

    來重新定義年齡該是什麼樣子,

  • But becoming dangerous isn't about becoming a certain age,

    能夠做什麼、能夠達成什麼。

  • because at each end of the age spectrum,

    但變危險的重點並不是變成某個年齡,

  • brave women and girls are stepping up,

    因為在年齡光譜的每一端,

  • taking the risk to create change.

    都有勇敢的女子和女孩站出來,

  • I became a risk-taker early in my life's journey.

    冒險去創造改變。

  • I had to,

    我在人生旅程的早期就成了冒險者。

  • or have my life defined by the limitations

    我不得不,

  • for a girl growing up in the rural South,

    要不然,我的人生就會

  • with no money, no connections,

    被在南方鄉村長大的女孩所侷限,

  • no influence.

    沒有錢,沒有人脈,

  • But what wasn't limited

    沒有影響力。

  • was my curiosity about the world beyond my small town,

    但,沒受限的是我的好奇心,

  • beyond the small minds of a still-segregated South,

    好奇我家鄉小鎮外的世界,

  • a world that I glimpsed in the newsreels

    好奇當時南方仍有 種族隔離思想外的世界,

  • at the one movie theater in town,

    那個我在鎮上唯一的電影院中 所播放的新聞影片裡

  • and a world that got a lot closer to me

    所看到的世界,

  • when I met Miss Shirley Rountree, my eighth-grade English teacher.

    在我遇見八年級的英文老師

  • From the minute she walked into the classroom,

    雪莉‧朗特利老師時, 我離這個世界更近了。

  • her high heels clicking,

    從她走進教室的那一刻,

  • she was a woman in charge,

    她的高跟鞋發出卡嗒聲,

  • with perfect hair, signature red lips,

    她是掌權的女性,

  • colorfully coordinated, head to toe.

    她有完美的頭髮,招牌的紅色嘴脣,

  • I wanted to be her.

    從頭到腳的顏色十分協調。

  • Gratefully, she became my first mentor and helped me become me.

    我想要成為她。

  • With her support, I got a scholarship to college --

    我很感恩,因為她成為 我第一位良師益友,

  • the first in my family --

    幫助我做自己。

  • and landed at a big state university,

    在她的支持之下, 我拿到了大學獎學金——

  • right in the middle of two great social justice movements:

    在我家庭中第一個拿到的人——

  • civil rights for African Americans

    且進入了一間大型州立大學,

  • and equal rights for women.

    時間點就在兩個偉大的 社會正義運動之間:

  • I joined both with enthusiasm,

    非裔美國人的民權運動

  • only to discover that my newfound activism

    以及女性的平權運動。

  • and my fermenting feminism

    我帶著熱情參與了這兩個運動,

  • would often be in direct conflict with my deeply embedded need to please

    卻意會到我新發現的活動主義

  • and be popular.

    和我正在醞釀的女權主義

  • In my first job as a college teacher, I broke the rules,

    通常和我內心深處想要取悅他人、

  • and I encouraged students to join me in the protest marches.

    與受人歡迎的需求

  • And when I found out that my male colleague

    有直接的衝突。

  • with the same experience and education

    我的第一份工作是大學老師, 那時我就打破了規則,

  • was being paid more than me,

    我鼓勵學生和我一起 加入抗議遊行。

  • I mounted a personal protest.

    我發現我的男同事

  • When my raise was denied,

    和我有同樣的資歷和教育程度,

  • with the excuse that he had a family to support,

    薪水卻比我高,

  • so did I as a single mom.

    我發動了我個人的抗議。

  • But I dropped my protest to keep my job.

    當我的加薪被否決,

  • Today, millions of women are making this compromise,

    否決的藉口是他有家要養,

  • staying in their jobs without equal pay

    但我這個單親媽媽也有家要養。

  • for equal work.

    但我放棄了抗議以保住工作。

  • And as one of the first women on television in the '70s,

    現今,有數百萬女性 都做出這樣的妥協,

  • I was warned that focusing on women's stories

    繼續做著

  • would limit my career opportunities,

    同工不同酬的工作。

  • and maybe it did.

    我是七〇年代最早 上電視的女性之一,

  • But I got to produce and host breakthrough programming for women,

    我被警告說若我把焦點 都放在女性故事上,

  • while at the same time,

    我的職涯機會就會受限,

  • remaining silent

    也許的確是如此。

  • about sexual harassment

    但我得以製作、主持 突破性的女性節目,

  • and listening to consultants who were hired to advise me

    同時,

  • about my appearance.

    對性騷擾議題保持沉默,

  • "Become a blonde."

    並聽從那些僱用來

  • I did.

    給我做造型的顧問,

  • "Lower your voice."

    「染成金髮。」

  • I tried.

    我染了。

  • "Lower your necklines."

    「把聲音壓低。」

  • I didn't.

    我試了。

  • (Laughter)

    「把領口降低。」

  • But I did wear those ugly anchor suits

    我沒有做。

  • with those scarves that look something like men's ties.

    (笑聲)

  • And later, in the power positions in media,

    但我確實穿了那種醜陋的主播裝,

  • often as the first or only woman,

    圍著那種看起來 像是男仕領結的圍巾。

  • aware of being judged through that gender lens,

    後來,在媒體界握有權力的職位上,

  • I struggled from time to time

    通常我也是第一位或唯一的女性,

  • to find the right balance between being a leader for women

    意識到別人透過性別透鏡來評斷我,

  • and not being entirely defined as a woman leader.

    我經常在掙扎,

  • But today, I'm proud to be known as a woman leader.

    努力地想在成為女性的先鋒領導者,

  • (Applause)

    但不要被完全定義為女性領導者 之間找到一個平衡點。

  • As an activist, advocate, feminist

    但現今,我很驕傲 自己以女性領導者聞名。

  • and as a newly declared dangerous woman,

    (掌聲)

  • I'm caring less what others say

    身為活動家、倡導者、女性主義者,

  • and saying more clearly what I think and feel.

    以及新宣稱的危險女子,

  • And let me be clear:

    對別人怎麼說, 我在乎的程度越來越低,

  • I acknowledge my privilege in being able to do that,

    但我把我的想法和感受 說得越來越清楚。

  • to speak my truth.

    讓我說清楚:

  • And to stand here today

    我承認我有特權可以這麼做,

  • with this opportunity

    可以說出我的真相。

  • to talk to you about women and power --

    且今天有機會

  • note I did not say "empowered."

    站在這裡,

  • I don't think we're waiting to be empowered.

    跟大家談女性和權力——

  • I think we have power.

    請注意,我並沒有說「被賦權」。

  • (Applause)

    我認為我們不能等著被賦權。

  • What we need are more opportunities to claim it, to use it,

    我認為我們有權力。

  • to share it.

    (掌聲)

  • And yes, I know --

    我們需要的是更多機會

  • there are women with power who don't use it well or wisely

    來主張它、使用它、分享它。

  • and who don't share it.

    是的,我知道——

  • I've heard, as I'm sure you have,

    一些有權力的女性, 並沒有好好地、明智地使用它

  • those stories that begin with,

    也不樂於分享。

  • "The worst boss I ever had was a woman ... "

    我聽過,相信你們也聽過,

  • And we could all name women leaders who have not made us proud.

    有些故事的開頭是:

  • But we can change all of that

    「我遇過最糟糕的老闆是個女的……」

  • with a simple but brilliant idea

    我們都說得出那些沒能讓我們 引以為傲的女性領導人。

  • that I first heard from a risk-taking, dangerous congresswoman from New York

    但我們可以改變這一切,

  • named Bella Abzug.

    需要的只是一個簡單卻聰明的點子,

  • Bella said, "In the 21st century,

    我最初是從一位勇於冒險的紐約州 危險國會女議員那裡聽來的,

  • women will change the nature of power

    她叫做貝拉‧阿布祖格。

  • rather than power changing the nature of women."

    貝拉說:「在二十一世紀,

  • From the moment I heard that --

    女性會改變權力的本質,

  • (Applause)

    而不是權力改變女性的本質。」

  • I thought, "This is our call to action.

    從我聽到那句話的那一刻——

  • This is our biggest opportunity."

    (掌聲)

  • And as a journalist and an activist,

    我心想:「這是我們要號召的行動。

  • I've seen this idea in action,

    這是我們最大的機會。」

  • documenting the stories of women on both sides in long-term conflicts,

    身為記者及活動家,

  • coming together and defying the official power

    我曾經見過這個點子付諸實行,

  • to form alliances and find their own ways to ending violence in their communities.

    故事是關於長期衝突的兩方女性

  • And as an activist, I've traveled to places

    聯手起來反抗官方的權力,

  • where it's dangerous to be born a woman,

    成立聯盟找到她們自己的方法

  • like eastern Congo,

    來終結她們社區內的暴力。

  • where a war is being waged on the bodies of women.

    身為活動家,我曾經去過那些

  • There, at a healing and leadership center called City of Joy,

    身為女性這個角色會很危險的地方,

  • brave Congolese women are transforming pain into power

    比如東剛果,

  • by training survivors of sexual assault

    在那裡打的是一場 針對女性身體的戰爭。

  • to return to their villages as leaders.

    在那裡,一個名為「喜悅城市」的 治療及領導力中心裡,

  • And at recent climate summits,

    勇敢的剛果女性化痛苦為力量,

  • I've observed women climate leaders working behinds the scenes,

    訓練受性侵的倖存者

  • out of the public spotlight,

    返回她們的村落成為領導人。

  • making sure that the negotiations toward global climate agreement

    在近期的氣候高峰會上,

  • continue to move forward.

    我觀察到在幕後的女性氣候領導人,

  • So as we move forward in our lives and work

    雖不在公眾的聚光燈下,

  • and we have more power and influence,

    卻在努力確保全球氣候協定的協商

  • let's change the nature of power

    能持續進展。

  • by dismantling some of the barriers that remain for those who follow

    隨著我們在生活及工作上向前邁進,

  • by advocating and agitating

    我們有更多權力和影響力,

  • for fairer and truer and more equal representation

    讓我們來改變權力的本質,

  • in every room and at every table.

    透過替後繼者消除那些尚存的障礙;

  • Now, be warned:

    透過提倡和鼓動

  • if you advocate for a woman

    更公平、更真實、更平等的 代表性之方法

  • for an open position or promotion,

    在每間會議室、每張會議桌上實現。

  • you could be challenged with,

    要注意,

  • "You're playing the women's card"

    如果你公開支持一位女性

  • or "the race card"

    去取得一個職缺或晉升的機會,

  • if advocating for a woman of color.

    你可能會被別人挑戰:

  • I've had this experience, as I'm sure you have.

    「你在打女性牌」,

  • "Are you running an affirmative action program here at PBS?"

    或「種族牌」,

  • asked one of my board members when, as a new president,

    如果那位女性是位非白人女性。

  • I announced my first hires as five qualified women.

    我有過這種經驗,我相信你們也有過。

  • Now, my affirmative action had been

    「你在公共廣播電視公司積極推動 僱用女性和少數民族的計畫嗎?」

  • to ask that the search firm bring me a candidate list

    一名董事這樣問, 當時,我是新董事長,

  • that included the names of women and people of color

    我宣佈我最先僱用的人 是五位符合資格的女性。

  • who just happened to be, in my judgment,

    我的積極行動是

  • the best candidates for the position as well.

    要求獵人頭公司交給我的候選名單中,

  • I say, dangerous women

    要包含女性和非白種人,

  • and our allies:

    而根據我的判斷,這些人剛好

  • it's time to play the women's card,

    是最適合這個職務的候選人。

  • play the race card,

    我說,危險的女人

  • play all our cards.

    和我們的盟友:

  • (Applause)

    該是打女性牌、 打種族牌的時候了,

  • Not to win the power game,

    把我們所有的牌都打出來。

  • but to lead to better outcomes

    (掌聲)

  • for everyone.

    不是要在權力遊戲中獲勝,

  • And it's time, too,

    而是要為所有人帶來更好的結果。

  • to discard that scarcity theory,

    現在該是拋棄稀有性理論的時候了,

  • the one that says,

    這個理論說,

  • there's only room for one of us at the top,

    最上層的空間只能容下一個人,

  • so protect your turf,

    所以,保護你的地盤,

  • don't make friends or allies.

    不要交朋友或盟友。

  • Changing the nature of power

    改變權力的本質,

  • transforms "protect your turf" into "share your turf,"

    把「保護你的地盤」 轉變成「分享你的地盤」,

  • it encourages coalitions,

    這麼做能鼓勵結合,能建立聯盟,

  • it builds alliances,

    能強化和維持友誼。

  • it strengthens and sustains friendships.

    我的女性朋友不斷地 供應我可再生的資源。

  • My women friends are my source of renewable energy.

    (掌聲)

  • (Applause)

    還有我的良師益友、我的擁護者、

  • So are my mentors, my champions,

    我的支持者、我的贊助者,

  • my supporters, my sponsors,

    還有我們能夠為彼此 站出來互挺的所有方式。

  • and all of the ways that we can and do show up for each other.

    我們能為彼此供應

  • We can become our sources of renewable power

    可再生的力量。
