A Salute to Women of Vision

On the evening of May 13, 2013 the Ms. Foundation for Women hosted our annual Gloria Awards: A Salute to Women of Vision gala which also celebrated the Ms. Foundation for Women’s 40th Anniversary, at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City. President and CEO Anika Rahman and Co-Founding mother Gloria Steinem co-hosted this momentous evening.
We are proud to announce that the pre-gala cocktail reception was co-hosted by renowned actress Olympia Dukakis and Ms. Foundation Co-Founder Marlo Thomas. The reception was a fitting kick-off to the celebration where seven phenomenal women were honored.
