Who are three women – living or dead – that you would like to have drinks with and why?

1) Rachel Carson: Her courage to stand for what she believed in for the good of all, i.e. speaking against harmful products that greatly affected habitat and human health.

3) Amal Clooney: Her global work (and impact) on social justice and social equity.
