Au­thor, poet and wise woman Maya An­gelou gave the world a wealth of brave, inspiring words.

Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.” This month, spurred on by the drive of women like film­maker Emily Kai Bock (page 78) who are carv­ing out their own niche, I pro­pose we do just that. I’ll even take the first kick.
