This year the WHP will be honoring, among others, Abigail Disney who is responsible for the new documentary Pray the Devil Back to Hell, a film about the extraordinary story of a band of Liberian women who came together in the midst of a bloody civil war, took on the warlords, and brought peace to their shattered country. I believe it is premiering soon so be sure to put that one on your list.
They will also be honoring a group of 10 women, for their extraordinary contributions, including many I know well: my dear friend and mentor, Barbara Dopkin, my new friend and powerhouse at Best Buy, Julie Gilbert, the head of human capital management at Morgan Stanley, Linda Reifler, and the two Goddesses who are behind the “Women Moving Millions Campaign” , Helen LaKelly and Swanee Hunt. It will be an absolute and complete feminist party and I cannot wait to be there.
Hmmmm …. Though I was planning on wearing a red dress, I just might have to break out my Wonder Woman Costume. I cannot think of a better occasion.
