On Saturday, October 15th, Visionary Women, a non-profit that supports and inspires women to reach their full potential, invited the Girls for the Last Girl team to speak at their event, presenting us with a generous grant. Maemae Dylan and Holly Konner played a new, original short film (discussed in the previous blog), and gave a speech about the work we do, and why we do it. Afterwards, the renowned artist Julie Mehretu spoke about her art and its inspiration, evoking the theme of female empowerment. The event was both moving and motivational, and we would like to thank Visionary Women endlessly for allowing us to be there. Another big thanks to Lauren Taschen, who hosted the event at her beautiful home.
