Global Fund Gets Jiggy!

20 Years of Supporting Women

Sun, June 08, 2008

Last week the Global Fund for Women celebrated 20 years and $65 million of grants to divalicious organizations around the world - and they threw a shindig worthy of such an astounding accomplishment. The classy joint, the excellent eats and the presence of Liberian president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, were enough to send the night into pro-woman orbit, but here’s what stole the show: the presence of the grassroots activists whose spirit and work trumped the pomp.

Below, a shout out to just a few of the women and their causes:

Zainah Anwar : Malasia Sisters in Islam
Patricia Guerrero: Columbia League of Displaced Women
Prudence Mabele: South Africa Positive Women’s Network
Taida Horozovic: Bosnia and Herzogovina CURE
Hoda Elsadda: Egypt, Women and Memory Fund

We tip our tiara to the Global Fund which helps ignite the words and deeds of these women who dance, fight, sing, organize and strategize all over the world in pursuit social justice.
