WHAT IS VISIONARY WOMEN?
Visionary Women is a nonprofit organization based out of Los Angeles dedicated to helping empower women worldwide. They have supported programs to help homeless women in L.A., and programs in Africa, supporting survivors of the Rwandan genocide. Just this year, they have raised over $100,000 to aid relief funds in response to COVID-19. One of their main functions is hosting conferences, which they call Salons, lead by some of the country's most influential female ambassadors, artists, journalists, professors, and entrepreneurs. Some of their past Salons have featured:
Gloria Steinem - Feminist Author and Activist
Cleo Wade - Poet, Author, and Activist
Candace Bushnell - Creator of, "Sex and the City"
Leymah Gbowee - Nobel Peace Prize Winner and Activist
Gloria Steinem and Cleo Wade speaking at the Salon, "Celebrating the Feminist Legacy of Gloria Steinem."
The Salons they hold throughout the year cover topics that affect women locally and globally. Some previous Salons have been about:
Women in the Arts
The State of Global Affairs Through a Woman's Perspective
How Social Media Is Reshaping Your Life
The Refugee Crisis and Its Impact on Women and Girls
Women at the Forefront of Technology
And Many More!
Visionary Women also honor female thought leaders who are championing women's rights. Last year they honored ENTITY Mentor Patricia Arquette and Rosanna Arquette as Sisterhood Visionaries of the year.
