Radical Generosity - #celebratewomen

On May 10th we attended the New York Women’s Foundation annual Celebrating Women Breakfast, with deep thanks to our friend Randi Zinn, author, mindfulness and wellness expert, and founder of of Beyond Mom and the podcast 'On Air with Beyond Mom'. Beyond Mom is harnessing a movement of women who are taking back their right to self-love, self-care and community as a pathway to fulfillment. 

Our minds were blown by the collective power of the over 2000 women gathered on the 6th floor of the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. The positive energy towards change and the unanimous desire for activism was palpable. We are still unpacking the depth of the inspirational words spoken by some of the strongest female leaders of our time including Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw, Tarana Burke and Lorie A. Slutsky, President of The New York Community Trust.

Our highlight was hearing stories by the founder of the #metoo movement, Tarana Burke. Tarana has spent 12 long years fighting for resources to support the healing path of girls and women affected by sexual violence. The New York Women’s Foundation uses the tag line 'Radical Generosity' so how fitting that they should  announce the launch of a fund seeded with a $1 million grant to Tarana and her #metoo movement. We hope that many others will follow. We're sorry it’s taken us so long to catch up to you Tarana. We are here by your side and stand firmly in support of every woman’s right to feel safe and supported at home, in the workplace and in all areas of their lives.
