Alicia Curtis is the driving force behind 100 Women, being inspired by the book ‘Half the Sky’ written by Pulitzer Prize-winning team, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. 100 Women is now guided by a strong Advisory Committee.
“Sometimes you can feel a bit helpless with all the problems of the world. How can I make a difference? I wanted to bring together women who wanted to start building a positive legacy in the world. I’m lucky, I have access to education, health services and employment. I am free from violence. Unfortunately, not all girls and women have these opportunities. How do we connect those who have with those who haven’t and bridge the gap? That’s when 100 Women was born.” Alicia Curtis, Founder and Chair
