YW is honoured to be joined by Gloria Allred, the trailblazing, award-winning lawyer who has tirelessly fought for justice for women and minorities as our 2023 YWHISPER Fundraising Gala Keynote Speaker.
Gloria is a fearless feminist, activist, television and radio commentator, warrior, advocate, and winner. Described by Time Magazine as “one of the nation’s most effective advocates of family rights and feminist causes”, Gloria is a staunch advocate for the #MeToo movement, Gloria has spoken out on the value of confidential settlements, which protect the victim from further suffering that often comes with a public lawsuit and trial.
Gloria’s cases have ranged from the celebrity trials of O.J. Simpson, Scott Peterson, Hunter Tylo and Tommy Lee to the less-known legal struggles of those seeking rights denied to them because of their sex, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion or because they are HIV+ or have AIDS.
