Women of Influence preview with Angie Lloyd (plus 3 Frozen-related fast facts)

Angie LLoyd didn't think she would grow up to be a lawyer. She knew she wanted to help people, which is why she decided to join the Peace Corps. One day, while teaching English in Kenya, she found herself and her fellow faculty members detained by armed military personnel for 24 hours following the publication of banned content in her students' makeshift newspaper. "It was discussed how you were not allowed to say things that were critical of the government," Lloyd recalled. "And I thought, 'Wow, I need a lawyer.'" Lloyd, who today serves as executive director of the Ohio Access to Justice Foundation, shared that story during a recent taping of our Women of Influence podcast. The full episode will air next week (early, ahead of the holiday), but check out our preview episode for a sampling of what's to come.
