Paula Sinclair

Paula Sinclair began her professional life as a banker in NYC, but soon realized that she enjoyed writing about her portfolio of companies more than she liked financing them. She became a business journalist, writing about Latin America, business, and technology. Paula re-located to San Francisco in the late 1990s, just in time to write about technology and consult to companies during the boom years. In 2002, she moved to Boston with her family and became Director of Strategy and Communications for Writers’ Express (now Amplify), overseeing all aspects of communications, fundraising and Board development. Most recently she ran Summer Ink, a writing and adventure camp for Boston-area adolescents for four years. Paula is on the Board of Summer Ink and Ramah Outdoor Adventure. She has a BA from Emory University and MA from Columbia University and speaks Hebrew and Spanish.

My Life with Granny

I met my mother-in-law, Aileen Patricia Dogherty, during my winter break from graduate school in December 1988. My then boyfriend (now husband), John Sinclair, was quite nervous, as I had invited myself to Key Largo to spend time with him and his parents over our long vacation. As a practicing non-Jew, he had never been exposed to anybody inviting themselves over, let alone to his parents’ historically no-Jews-allowed fishing club.

Like You Need an Excuse to Speak Out?

The idea of Women’s History Month is relatively new.  National Women’s History Week only became an official event in 1980 and was expanded to Women’s History Month in 1987. But here’s the surprising thing: unlike Thanksgiving or the Fourth of July, which come every year, Women’s History Month is renewed year after year by a presidential declaration. It’s not automatic that we set aside time every year to think about women’s history and women’s roles in society; it’s an ongoing, conscious process.

This Women’s History Month, we invite you to think about women and change. Has Women’s History Month made a difference? Have you noticed a difference in how you live your life or perceive the world? Differences between your outlook on the world and the way your mom, your aunt, your daughter view things? Do we still need Women’s History Month?
