YW Calgary is pleased to announce the guest speakers for the 9th annual YWHISPER Fundraising Gala are Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey.
In 2017, these New York Times journalists and best-selling authors broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of alleged sexual harassment and abuse towards women. Their book, “She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement,” includes a firsthand account of their investigation into the Weinstein case and how this was instrumental in the shaping of the #MeToo movement.
Join us on Wednesday, March 4, 2020, at the 9th annual YWHISPER Fundraising Gala at the TELUS Convention Centre. Proceeds raised will support women and families at YW to thrive, while advocating for women’s safety, social and economic rights.
