We are currently fighting for our organization’s life. Headed into 2019, Women You Should Know can no longer survive without outside funding as we’ve done for the last 7 plus years. With our existence hanging perilously in the balance, this powerful chorus of individual voices (click image to play video) stepped up to speak up on our behalf. We hope they inspire you to ‘Turn Your Love Into Action’ as our survival depends on your support.
Over the last seven years, every ounce of work Women You Should Know has done and every piece of content we’ve written, created and produced has been funded out of the pockets of our dedicated co-founders, Jen Jones and Cynthia Hornig. Since 2011 they have continued to make the greatest personal sacrifices in order to ensure that the stories and struggles of women building their own futures, changing the status quo, crushing stereotypes, and defying the odds have a powerful platform. Now we need your help to save it and keep it thriving.
If you come to Women You Should Know to learn and think, engage and delight, be moved and inspired, please consider supporting us. Every dollar you are able to contribute will help sustain our mission so we can keep giving women the coverage they deserve and providing you with the content, events, and programming you love into the coming year and beyond.
Thank you for being our champion.
