Raised in a small town in Georgia with no money or connections, Pat Mitchell went on to become a consummate media game-changer. She was the first woman president of PBS and of CNN productions, and also a visionary, award-winning TV and film producer, fully engaged on the front lines of cultural change. Pat Mitchell is a dangerous woman. What makes Pat Mitchell dangerous is her lifelong insistence on redefining power on her terms, and in leveraging that power to manifest a better world. In Becoming a Dangerous Woman, she shares her own path to power, from a childhood spent on a cotton farm in the South to her unprecedented rise in media and global affairs. Alongside revelatory interviews with other dangerous women, Mitchell takes us on a lively journey, sharing with readers intimate anecdotes about navigating the power paradigms of Washington DC and Hollywood, traveling to war zones with Eve Ensler and Glenn Close, pressing Fidel Castro into making a historic admission about the Cold War, and matching wits with Ted Turner and Robert Redford.
I’ve witnessed what a force of nature Pat Mitchell becomes when she believes in something. And, fortunately for all of us, she believes in making our world better. As a passionate advocate, producer and mentor, her commitment to empowering and inspiring women and girls through telling their stories is changing hearts and minds. I am glad to both know and work with her, and to watch her impact grow.
