One Unforgettable Night
80 Years of Gloria 40 Years of Ms.
A Salute to Women of Vision
May 1, 2014
What a night we had celebrating women, including our very special founding mother, Gloria Steinem and her 80th birthday and the 40th Anniversary of the Ms. Foundation for Women.
We were able to recognize truly legendary women including Charon Asetoyer, Ellen Bravo, Denicia Cadena, Connie Evans, and Miriam C. Yeung.
We also gave new Women of Vision Gloria Awards, an award bestowed to women whose courage, leadership and action move us toward realization of our shared vision for a just and inclusive democracy, to Marissa Nuncio and Cathy Raphael.
Very special performances were given by Chelsea Handler, Kathy Najimy, Amy Schumer and Gabourey Sidibe.
Special guests included Billie Jean King, Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis. Phil Donahue introduced the birthday tribute to Gloria and Judy Gold led us in a competitive auction to support the Ms. Foundation work.
Musical numbers were performed by Betty, Sophie B. Hawkins, and Sam and Dom.
