greta and we say: express yourself

Posted on March 27th, 2009 in Princess Wears Prada,Sista Christian Louboutin by hireheels

A hireheels kick-up to Greta Van Susteren for boldly slapping the "Hillary-Palin Haters" in her poignant post yesterday.  We built hireheels for the very reason Greta cites.  Driven to disgust by the media’s treatment of Hillary Clinton in the last election, we felt we had no choice.
To echo Greta, you needn’t agree with these women all the time but, if you’re going to express yourself, you should be decent and use your intellect (not hate) and show respect for those women who deserve to be on the stage.

As we celebrate our one-year anniversary, we know we must continue the march, by dishing our ‘wickedly delicious sass’ to hundreds of thousands of hireheelers around the globe…in stilettos of course.

Please continue to express yourself and share hireheels.com with the women in your life.

Happy Anniversary HireHeelers!

    princess ill tell ya one of the Major reason for all that sexism .. both hillary & palin were a major threat to the good ole boys club .. berry bidein & the rest of the dnc leadership feel threatened by women in power.. these so-called men didnt even have the B***** 2 say something like it was things that were being said was totally inappropriate .. but instead there was silence… it takes a real man 2 stand up for a women

    The only way to change it is by women supporting and mentoring women. We have the power but we frequently do not use it and/or we stay hidden. If we do push we are considered pushy. I’ve learned the hard way. Just get out there and all else be damned.

    bravissimo kavala!

    Happy anniversary…with many more sassy ones to follow!

    Hillary gave a stellar interview last night with Greta on Fox…she is running the world, while Obama runs the country (LOL)
    …and me thinks she knows it, too!

  5. on March 27th, 2009 at 1:06 pm

    ok i think we should hold this party on the beach …..

  6. on March 27th, 2009 at 1:09 pm

    kava007— you’re one bond girl that really gets it!!
    thanks for hanging in our closet for the past year heels.

    you are too kind. i have learned the hard way. wasn’t it barbara streisand said “don’t be good be memorable.” to be memorable you have to be out there.

    i was invited to give a talk at a university in japan. it was not on my area of expertise but it was on how a university can leverage their intellectual property. i had to research the topic but i thought, “i can do this” and have a good time doing it.” it was great fun and i met a lot of good people. women just have to learn to always step into their own power
    and enjoy it.

    that’s what our gal hillary is doing now. during the election, she came across well on her town hall meetings and at her fundraisers. now she comes across fantastic all of the time. she does not let anyone steal her power.

    One year hire heels – should be a good enough reason to dig out some Veuve C, right? After all the good veuve (which means widow in french) had inherited the business from her husband and went on to turn it around into one of the best know champagne brands.

    To honor this special woman, Veuve Cliquot, the champagne house awards every year an extraordinary business woman.


    That’s good enough to make it my house brand, nevermind that I like their blend of Chardonnay and Pinot – not too biscuity and ORANGE is my favourite colour!

    Ladies, I salute you

    Alright!!! I knew I loved that champagne for a reason (even the demi sec). Thanks for the info.

    I lift my glass of veuve to hireheels. You do us ladies proud.

    Hey Kavala,

    you are so right when it comes to supporting and mentoring other women – too many women just whinge. You wanna change the world and make it a better place for women, well, dont wait for men to do it for you!! Take charge!

    Deutsche Bank is organizing every year a Women Conference in London (they adopted the concept when they took over Bankers Trust -there is a Women on Wall Street conf in NYC). The London conference is open to all women. So imagine abt 800 women from different industries in one huge concert hall – very empowering! Last year’s guest speakers were Cherie Blair (wife of Tony-what a disaster-she wore white high heels!) and Arianna H of the Post (i must admit she was good and I had a long chat with her afterwards).

    But the talent is out there, women just need to go for it! I took my 70+year old mum with me to the conf to show her how far women had gotten – she was sort of a trailblazer of her generation. Studying law when people said nobody would hire a girl – well, she ended up as a judge – I guess not too bad!

    How did you like Japan. Toured Japan with the Icelandic GF in 2007. I think we were a bit to empowered and impatient for the polite Japanese. They are sooo nice, you just want to hug them!

  12. on March 27th, 2009 at 8:40 pm

    georgia armani wait the drink your talking about means widow thats not the way id go

    georgia armani,

    your mother sounds great. good for her – both a lawyer and a judge. women from all age groups and wherever they are should be supportive and mentored by one another. sometimes it is just a kind word or a smile or a chitchat. i know this little 14-month girl (tends to be a bit scared of things) whose mother disappeared from her view and she started to cry. i just said come on, you can do it, you can find her, she’s just down here. she stopped crying and followed me as i walked towards her mother. a few days later i heard she was climbing up a flight of stars. sometimes those words “come on you can do it” are just the encouragement we need.

    I’ll have to take a look at the Deutsche bank’s conference.

    i love japan and yes, they are very polite. they are also very hospitable. one of the things i loved were the trains. you can take the bullet train from tokyo to osaka, a distance of 300+ miles, in 2 hours and 33 minutes. fantastic!!!

    Happy anniversary, HH. I remember when I first stopped by. It was to view your vid, “Tale of Two Trintities.” It was powerful, IMO.

    The Houston Chronicle gives HRC some good press here.


  22. JayM said,

    on March 28th, 2009 at 5:40 pm

    spelling is bad. should be “tale of two trinities.”

    Buon giorno,

    London is vaguely spring-like today -let’s hope that’s a good sign for what the week will bring, everybody here is somewhat worried with the G20 being in town soon, wondering which areas are safe.

    Just been to the new Saatchi Gallery which has an exhibition on ‘New Art from the Middle East’. I particularly liked the work of a Iranian artist, Shadi Ghadirian, on the role of women in the MEast. See for yourself.


  35. on March 30th, 2009 at 11:51 am

    georgia the feeling you get from the people there about berry

    The newspapers are more critical, however, the average person has not yet picked up that the lovefest is over and is still fairly supportive.

  38. georgia armani said,

    on March 30th, 2009 at 11:56 am

    but then people are much more preoccupied abt their own problems and are thinking not that much abt the US and the historic moment. last year that was different.

  39. on March 30th, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    Today in Iowa the Heartland proves It has a Heart….the right for Civil Marriage Is Extended to Gay and Lesbian Couples!

    Often doing the right thing is hard and at first violently opposed eventually it is tollerated and finally it is seen as normal and even expected in civil society!

    WHat the Supreme Court in Iowa did today was its job the ruling was beautifully written!

    As a Son of Iowa and the Great Great Nephew of an Iowan Judge the Honorable Daniel Maguire….I am proud of the Judges of Iowa!

    When the legistature is to cowardly or unable to extend or enforce the nobel rights of equality and equal protection of the law then it is the duty of the courts to provide that just redress to the opressed.

    today the court system did its job and did it well as the framers of our constitution intended!
