Women and Power: Laverne Cox on the Power of Visibility

By

Laverne Cox sat down with New York to talk about where she finds power, and how she uses it. “I’m going to keep coming back to saying it’s about connecting to something that is larger you. That is what real power is,” she remarks.

This interview is part of our Women and Power series, an examination of women’s relationship to power — how they get it, how they lose it, how they wield it, what they sacrifice for it, and, ultimately, what they hope power will help them achieve.
