Opinion: Women Are Our Own Saviors. And We Always Have Been

President & CEO of The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham, Melanie R. Bridgeforth, released an op-ed, “Women are our own saviors. And we always have been,” where she outlines the importance of women leading “place-based” philanthropy, the integral role of collective power, and the Women’s Funding Network, as we continue to contend for gender equality in the face of the pandemic.

As the leader of The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham, I could not be prouder to be an integral part of a growing community of more than 120 women’s foundations spanning 14 countries. Our Women’s Funding Network is fueling social change through both philanthropy and activism.
