Tomorrow begins the celebration of the Women Moving Millions Campaign. I hope you will read all about it in the press in the days to follow. I am deeply honored to be part of this community of women. I want to mark this moment, this day, this month, this year as an acceleration point, maybe a turning point, in the womens movement. Why? Because I believe that women have and are increasingly going to use their resources, and specifically their money, to drive the change they want to see in the world. This is about collective action. This is about the power of the purse. This is about aligning our values with our money not only in how we give, but how we spend, save and invest. Tomorrow as we gather at the Brooklyn Museum around Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party, we will indeed be taking our seat at the table.
