Program Topic/Speaker:

WOMENS WAY is Our Way

 

WOMENS WAY was formed in the mid-70s when the Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia would not permit them to be part of the United Way workplace donation program. So Lynn Yeakel and other courageous women decided they wouldn’t get mad, they’d get even by forming a feminist version of United Way. The leader was Lynn Yeakel who was, and is, a powerhouse. After she observed Arlen Spector’s shabby treatment of Anita Hill, in 1994 (called the “Year of the Women”), Lynn decided to run for office to try and defeat Spector and she almost succeeded.

Using strategic grant-making, WOMENS WAY funds agencies and vital projects that deal with sexual assault survivor counseling, women’s maternal healthcare, girls’ empowerment programs, work readiness, financial literacy, supportive housing and shelters for survivors of domestic abuse, employment opportunities, the Alice Paul Institute and many other powerful groups devoted to services for women and girls.

In addition, WOMENS WAY serves as the “go-to” organization for advocacy and expertise relating to women and girls for legislators as well as the general public. Their grant-making and advocacy has positively impacted the lives of more than 200,000 women and their families.

In 1997, WOMENS WAY created the Young Women’s Initiative (YWI) which provides networking opportunities for young women’s professional and personal needs. In 2002, they initiated their first Women and Influence Conference, a public forum bringing together community members to focus on issues important to women and girls.

WOMENS WAY’s vision statement is something we can all appreciate: “We envision an engaged society in which women and girls have achieved economic equity, safety, and reproductive freedom, and have unfettered access to opportunity.” They are guided by six core values: community-driven, courageous, visionary, dynamic, respectful, and trustworthy. For more information, see www.womensway.org.

Speaking on behalf of WOMENS WAY will be their Director of Education and Communication, Debasri Ghosh who is responsible for its public education events and initiatives. Debasri has been recognized as a Visionary Emerging Leader by the Valentine Foundation. A fluent Bengali speaker, she has served on the executive committee of the Bengali Cultural Society of South Jersey. Debasri lives in South Philadelphia with her husband and grumpy cat.


Meetings include speaker, refreshments, announcments and letter-writing activity.
Meetings open to members and nonmembers.

I always feel the movement is a sort of mosaic.
Each of us puts in one little stone,
and then you get a great mosaic at the end.
