Inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2021

Hailing from the Appalachian​ ​foothills​ ​of Ashland, Ky., mother​ ​and​ ​daughter​ duo, The Judds, were first discovered by RCA​ ​label​ ​head​ ​Joe​ ​Galante​ ​in​ ​1983 ​after landing a spot on​ ​WSM-TV’s​ “​The​ ​Ralph​ ​Emery Show.”

They​ ​made​ ​their​ ​chart​ ​debut​ ​by​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​year​ ​with​ ​“Had​ ​A​ ​Dream​ ​(For​ ​The​ ​Heart),” and​ ​the​ ​two​ ​were​ ​on​ ​their​ ​way​ ​to​ becoming one of the best-selling duos of all time. For​ ​the​ ​rest​ ​of​ ​the​ ​1980’s,​ ​each​ ​single​ ​from​ ​The​ ​Judds​ ​released​ ​by​ ​RCA​ ​went​ ​to​ ​the Billboard​ ​Top 10,​ ​with​ ​14 hits ​going​ ​all​ ​the​ ​way​ ​to​ ​number​ ​one.​ The Judds swept the CMA’s Vocal Group/Duo category from 1985 to 1991 and garnered six GRAMMY® Awards. The​y embarked​ ​on​ ​their​ ​“Farewell​ ​Tour”​ ​in​ ​1991 ​after​ ​Naomi’s​ ​diagnosis​ ​of​ ​Hepatitis C​ ​forced​ ​her​ ​to​ ​retire​ ​from​ ​the​ ​road.​ ​Naomi​ ​focused​ ​on​ ​her​ ​health,​ ​beating​ ​the​ ​disease and wrote​ ​several​ ​New​ ​York​ ​Times​ ​best-selling​ ​books.

Today, Naomi is promoting her new memoir “River of Time: My Descent Into Depression and
How I Emerged With Hope.” 


Invisible Bias – The Fatal Impact Of A World Designed For Men
Thursday, September 30 @ 11am EDT

Gender bias is everywhere and it impacts the lives of women everyday. We live in a world where:

  • Women are 17% more likely to be killed in a crash because cars have been designed around the bodies of male crash test dummies.
  • Women are 27% less likely than men to receive CPR from bystanders in public because CPR training does not include women’s figures. 
Often, the way the world is designed caters only to one gender harming people in ways we do not understand.
Join the United States of Women and VERITY NOW for a conversation about gender bias in data and learn how you can take action to advocate for equity in design.
