This week’s philanthropy spotlight: Ms. Magazine

A few weeks ago, I was invited to the 8th annual Ms. luncheon as a guest of Chairman Mom. The Ms. Luncheon is a fundraiser and celebrates individuals who have contributed to the advancement of the rights of women and girls and awareness of the injustices women face around the globe.

The luncheon raised $160,000, the proceeds going to support the work  Ms. and Girls Learn International to empower women and girls.

Ms. was the first U.S. magazine to feature prominent American women demanding the repeal of laws that criminalized abortion, the first to explain and advocate for the Equal Rights Amendment, to rate presidential candidates on women’s issues, to put domestic violence and sexual harassment on its cover, to commission and feature a national study on date rape, and to blow the whistle on the undue influence of advertising on magazine journalism.

You can learn more about their efforts and ways to get involved by visiting their website.
