Breaking Barriers: Women of Vision Award Honors Trailblazers in Gender and Racial Equity

Honoring extraordinary female leaders

The Ms. Foundation, the oldest women's foundation in the United States, is set to present the Women of Vision Award in May.

The award ceremony will honor exceptional women who have made significant contributions to gender and racial equity, marking the organization's 50th anniversary celebration. The event will take place at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City on May 16.

The Women of Vision Awards, hosted by the Ms. Foundation, honor remarkable individuals who have made significant contributions to gender and racial equity. This year's honorees include Duchess Meghan, LaTosha Brown of Black Voters Matter, Wanda Irving of Dr. Shalon's Maternal Action Project, and Kimberly Inez McGuire of URGE. The event also recognizes emerging leaders in the fields of abortion rights and LGBTQ+ advocacy, such as Olivia Julianna and Rebekah Bruesehoff.

Teresa C. Younger, President and CEO of the Ms. Foundation, expressed her gratitude to the exceptional leaders who have tirelessly worked to advance social justice, both in the US and worldwide. The Ms. Foundation has long championed these causes, and Ms. Younger's praise highlights their unwavering commitment.

This year's event will feature an award presented by Gloria Steinem to Meghan and Prince Harry for their outstanding global advocacy work through the Archewell Foundation. This includes providing 12.66 million COVID-19 vaccines and resettling 175,000 refugees in the US, as well as building a community play space in Texas.

In conclusion, the Women of Vision Award is a prestigious recognition of the exceptional work done by Meghan, LaTosha, Wanda, Kimberly, Olivia, and Rebekah.
