Power of the Purse - Sold Out

Writer, lecturer, editor and feminist activist Gloria Steinem will give the keynote address at The Community Foundation’s 2012 Power of the Purse luncheon on May 21. The event celebrates the power of women’s philanthropy in Western North Carolina.


A devoted activist and writer, Gloria Steinem is undeniably one of the most important voices of the modern feminist movement. Steinem's name is synonymous with the advancement of women's social equality in America and throughout the world. Perhaps best known as the co-founder and editor of "Ms. Magazine," she also co-founded the Ms. Foundation for Women, convened the historic 1971 Women's Political Caucus and founded the Coalition of Labor Union Women. Her books include Revolution from Within, Moving Beyond Words and Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions.

Power of the Purse will also feature the announcement of the 2012 Women for Women grant recipients. The 2012 Women for Women grant program promotes economic security for financially disadvantaged women and girls in Western North Carolina.

Proceeds benefit The Women’s Fund, a permanent endowment of The Community Foundation that supports the unmet needs of women and girls across the region.
