Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A well known journalist says she's excited to empower more women at the Women's Showcase. Lisa Ling has been all over the world but never to Fargo. She'll be the keynote speaker.

Ling says she enjoys talking to large groups of women because of the injustices toward them she's seen covering stories. It's one way to give women a voice during what she calls a movement.

She says women are key to winning in Afghanistan and transforming Africa.

“And my hope tomorrow is that I can invigorate, I can entice a lot of the women in attendance to not only become aware of so many of the issues that pertain to women but they, but try and provoke them to possibly act.”

Ling will share stories and experiences that have changed her life. She will be speaking at the Fargodome tomorrow afternoon at three.
