MS Foundation Awards
Ms. Foundation Founding Mothers (l-r) Gloria Steinem, Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Marlo Thomas, Patricia Carbine

Patricia Carbine, Letty Cottin-Pogrebin, Gloria Steinem, Marlo Thomas and Marie C. Wilson are the Founding Mothers of the Ms. Foundation for Women.

Conceived out of passion, the Ms. Foundation for Women filled a void in the hearts of those who believed that equality and justice could be realized by women leading change across the U.S. Forty years later, we can attribute the Ms. Foundation’s and our grantees’ success – our victories tearing down barriers that stand in the way of our health, safety and economic well-being – to our mothers’ loving influence.
