On today's In the Moment...

Governor Kristi Noem called for more inclusive language for women in leadership in South Dakota. Lori Walsh discusses language and power with Lisa Hager and Evren Çelik Wiltse. The political scientists with South Dakota State University are also the authors of the book Women's Paths to Power.

They discuss female political figures from Gov. Noem to Jacinda Arden, New Zealand's former prime minister, to Hillary Rodham Clinton to Condoleeza Rice.

The Sioux Falls Jazz & Blues Society's legacy plays on through financial gifts to Levitt at the Falls. Lori explores the society's history and impact with board president Beth Ormseth and executive director of the Levitt Nancy Halverson.

Plus, dive into Lakota storytelling and modern Native life through the brushstrokes of S.D. Nelson. The popular children's book author joins In the Moment ahead of receiving a state award for his work this February. He talks about his publications and efforts to promote literacy.
