25th Anniversary Gala

Global Fund for Women 25th Anniversary gala, April 17, 2013, New York City

The Honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton delivers a rousing keynote speech. "I like the Global Fund because from the very beginning it has understood that women can be agents of change, drivers of progress, makers of peace—all they need is a fighting chance. That we have to stop seeing women as victims and start seeing them as the people who own their own lives and can help the rest of us understand the future that can be created."


Global Fund for Women Board Member, founder of Center for Women's Global Leadership, and activist Charlotte Bunch speaks on the vital role of women's human rights defenders. "...we can only realize that the changes that are needed in the 21st century; if we defend the defenders, if we build a stronger net of security and support for those activists on the front lines who are experiencing intense backlash that comes with any progress toward change, but that particularly comes for women who dare to step out and take that role."
