A TRIBUTE TO WOMEN’S DAY LIVE PATRON ARCHBISHOP DESMOND TUTU

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

This is a personal tribute to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, my dear mentor and Patron of Women’s Day Live. I’ve never met anyone like him in my life. A man of great heart, vision and action. I believe that what the Archbishop loved about the vison of Women’s Day Live, which is ostensibly Live Aid Women, was the ability to connect people in cities and countries around the world to help one another, in our shared humanity. His ability to connect and love all human beings was one of the most profound things about him. It is my hope that his lessons of love and care to those that need it most will grow as the power of music unites the heartbeat of the world in a global fireplace to share our common humanity.

CREATING AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME

A  Revolutionary Commitment to Ignite the Power of Women Around the World.

IT IS TIME FOR BIG BOLD ACTION

We have just witnessed UN Women achieve a historic milestone for women at the Generation Equality Forum in Paris. Its bold agenda to accelerate gender justice for women will be under-written by nearly USD $40 Billion in investments and ambitious policy commitments from governments, philanthropy, civil society, youth organizations and the private sector.

This is the boldness we have been waiting to see, a powerful action-oriented agenda mobilizing all sectors of society to make it a “formidable force, ready to open a new chapter in advancing gender equality,” as Executive Director of UN Women, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, succinctly stated.

Bravo and bravo again! I am truly humbled and grateful for these commitments which gives UN Women’s visionary leadership a springboard to mobilize an unstoppable global movement to
