Tickets are now SOLD OUT for the 9th annual YWHISPER Fundraising Gala, featuring 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 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.
The outcomes of Weinstein’s trial were released on February 24, with the jury finding him guilty of rape and sexual assault. This decision is a critical component in shifting our culture and how, as a society, we respond to #MeToo.
We all have a role in speaking up and making changes in our workplaces, homes and communities that remove barriers and support, empower and provide women with different opportunities. Thank you for supporting YW Calgary to remove barriers for women and their families!
