Global Fund for Women International Women’s Day in San Francisco

       Earlier this week we had the great opportunity to document the Global Fund for Women International Women's Day event in San Francisco, at the Ian Ross Gallery. The event celebrated International Women's Day, with a speech from Girl Up advisor Riya Singh, and a distinguished panel discussion on the future of women's and girl's rights, which included Elizabeth Gore and Kathy Calvin, from the UN Foundation, Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, the former Prime Minister of Norway and currently Special Envoy with the United Nations, Dr. Musimbi Kanyoro, CEO of the GFW, and Jane Wurwand, founder of Dermalogica. It was such an inspiring afternoon and we left feeling uplifted by the amazing work people are doing around the world to support gender equality and to empower girls and women in their lives.

       We hope you enjoy these photos from the event :)
