Kudos, Lisa Belkin!

Lisa Belkin (from New York Times Website)

Kudos to Lisa Belkin for her great article “The Power of the Purse” (published in Tuesday’s NYT).

Behind all this giving lies the theory that helping women and children is the way to change the planet. “Seventy percent of people living in poverty around the world are women and children,” says Christine Grumm, president and C.E.O. of the Women’s Funding Network. “If women have a roof over their heads and a home free of violence, and good and affordable health care, then so do children. In the larger picture, it’s not just about women, but entire communities. Women are the conduits through which change is made.”

    Lisa, Thanks for your terrific article. FYI, I am the creator of an internet-based initiative called WITASWAN (Women in the Audience Supporting Women Artists Now). Three years ago, I began collaborating with Martha Richards of WomenArts to create “International SWAN Day” now celebrated annually at the end of every March.

    And WITASWAN’s tag line is… you guessed it… “The Power of the Purse”!!!

    All best,
    Jan
