Join the Greatest Global Celebration of Women in World History.
Our Time is Now.
This catastrophic moment in world history demands bold action. I am calling on your visionary leadership and heart with the greatest urgency to help lead a united global effort to combat global hunger which is having a devastating impact on women and children.
We have an Emmy-award winning team poised to produce Women’s Day Live (WDL) an epic International Women’s Day Live Music Festival and Benefit Concert to celebrate the women of the world on March 8, 2023.
This live global mega-shed entertainment extravaganza across all global media platforms will help open the heart of humanity to help feed hungry children and their families. We will launch the Heart in Action Global Humanitarian campaign and mobilize a global campaign to make poverty history by empowering women.
I have dedicated my life with a fiercely passionate commitment to harness the power of global media, celebrity and technology to advance the equality and critical leadership role of women in the world today. This is my mission. This is my modest ‘I have a dream’. I have never stopped believing in the impossible dream made possible.
Our time is now. This is our moonshot moment as a human family to commit to making an unprecedented investment in the future of women and girls with a bold Global Women’s Economic Empowerment initiative.
The Heart in Action Global Humanitarian Campaign – Step Up Revolution offers innovative Globe-Spanning Philanthropy. The Benefit will support the World Food Programme and Women’s Grassroots Funds where it is proven to have the greatest impact.
Help Catalyze the World’s Biggest Give Back Movement.
Not only can all charities and countries join the Women’s Day Live International Music Festival, and use our branding, platform and campaign for their own benefit or telethon, but we have an opportunity to mobilize a powerful mobile fund-raising campaign to feed the hungry with the word’s 750 mobile global operators. This is historic. It’s never been done before.
The recent head of global marketing for the GSMA, a coalition of the Worldwide Mobile Communications industry said “a global music event is a fantastic idea. “Really a stroke of brilliance!”
The legendary Louis J. Horvitz (Live Aid, Oscars, Grammys) will direct. I bless his heart for believing in me and the Women’s Day Live vision all these years. And the same holds true for my dearest Patron, Archbishop Desmond Tutu of blessed memory who supported this mission since it became a Clinton Global Initiative commitment in 2006, at the personal invitation of President Clinton. Executive Producer, Mark Poncher has been unwavering in his moral support.
Together we can build Women’s Day Live into one of the most popular International Music Festivals in the world, to create a sustainable annual fund-raising and global advocacy platform. A global communications network to align women’s power, vision and leadership.
International Women’s Day is wildly popular. It is celebrated in 150 countries with thousands of self-created events. We met with the former President of the UN Assembly who greatly appreciated the potential impact that WDL presents and offered to invite all member nations to celebrate their country’s women.
WOMENS’ DAY LIVE IS LIVE AID WOMEN.
Global engagement. Global Connectivity. Local Impact. Lasting Legacy.
Live Aid was one of the great humanitarian events of the 20th Century. 17 hours of Roc ‘n Roll was seen in over 110 countries, with over a billion viewers. It had over 40 simultaneous Telethons.
Live Aid proved the power of music to bring the heartbeat of the world together in our shared humanity, to show we care. Something we desperately need now. If we can stand together now, in a shared resolve we can be such a powerful force for positive social change.
A 24 HOUR LIVE GLOBAL MUSIC FESTIVAL. TOUCH THE HEART OF HUMANITY.
The Women’s Day Live Multi-Venue Benefit Concert will feature International Artists, and highlights of International Women’s Day Festivities around the world. A live Hollywood and Bollywood telethon will bring the heart-beat of the world together to inspire us to give boldly and generously.
We can convene the world’s beauty and fashion industry for a Livestream Shopping Festival bringing world fashion, culture and music together to captivate the world’s imagination with the beauty, wisdom and power of women worldwide. This is a social networking bonanza that will unleash the greatest creative expression of women and girls around the world. See Synopsis
We can Catapult Livestream Shopping on the world stage to make it the biggest shopping day of the year, engaging with all the global brands and digital media platforms. This day has seen exponential e-commerce growth in China for global brands. Singles Day in China made 78 billion dollars in one 24-hour period.
A Global Consortium of Strategic Partners is Vital for United Impact
We met with leaders of the Major Music Labels and many of the global media and music players many of whom at some point said Women’s Day Live was a brilliant initiative that is way overdue. “It is a fantastic global charitable platform to get behind.”
As Universal Music has so insightfully declared: “Music is a powerful force for good. In a world that desperately needs to find more common ground… there is no better way to inspire people and bring them together”.
I invite the visionary leadership and generous spirit of the global music players, the world’s great artists, innovators and entrepreneurs to support and partner with us to help lead the digital revolution in innovation with a vision of the possible future.
We’ve designed a system with a unique business model that allows all potential partners around the globe that are working towards positive social change and social responsibility to benefit and share in our success.
The real financial impact of Live Aid was their ability to spark world leaders and the private sector to step up commitments for more International Aid.
A GLOBAL CALL TO ACTION. EMPOWER WOMEN. MAKE POVERTY HISTORY.
Now is the time to call on world leaders to put women’s health, wealth and rights at the center of global economic recovery efforts. And for the G20 to put women at the heart of International Development Aid. Its time to deliver on the Billions of dollars pledged by the G7 leaders to invest in Women’s Grassroots Funds.
Canada and France led this game-changing investment in women in 2018/2019 and got G7 leaders to commit as well. Together with the U.S. and the UAE, they are perfectly positioned to mobilize an unstoppable global movement to implement a bold Global Women’s Empowerment initiative. To put the power of money and resources into the hands of women. At last.
World Leaders have pledged equality for women and to meet the SDG’s by 2030. How will this happen? Women are the most potent force for global economic growth. The world knows this.
It is time to keep promises to women with concrete commitments. It is clearly evident, that unless we change the cultural view about the value of women and girls as a transformative force in global society, nothing will change.
We are in the midst of a heart-breaking Global Humanitarian Crisis, with famine and starvation threatening to spread around the world.
By an overwhelming majority, women and girls are the poorest people on the planet.
All of us in the world who passionately care about women and girls are extremely concerned by the tragic setback that this Global Humanitarian crisis is having, which may cause a potential setback of generations. The attack on women’s civil rights and freedom, may reverse decades of progress. We can not let this happen.
IGNITE A UNITED GLOBAL EFFORT TO CHAMPION WOMEN AND GIRLS
Women’s Day Live offers UN Women a global megaphone to accelerate progress for women. Antonio Gutteres at the UN said the world is hungering for international co-operation.
The World Food Program is begging for help to save millions of lives. The senior Gender Analyst at the World Bank said they were incredibly inspired by WDL, which would help them get Finance Ministers to keep their pledges to women. Billions in International Development Aid could go into the hands of Grassroots Women.
The world’s LEADING foundations are invited to help launch The Women Aid International Pledge Fund, to raise 50 Billion Dollars for a Micro-Finance Fund for Women Entrepreneurs worldwide. To implement it in multiple countries, they can model Grameen Bank America, which has been a great success, in great part due to the legendary leadership of Dr. Muhammad Yunus and CEO Andea Jung. Micro-finance for women helped transform the entire economy of Bangladesh.
Urgent action is needed. The time to empower women and girls is now.
I stayed true to this mission, as I aspired to create a model for impact investing and global systems change that could help catapult capitalism into sustainability. You can tell a great deal about a civilization and what it values by where it puts its money. Are we worth it yet?
We need the world’s powerful economic players at the table and the world’s music players to achieve this bold and exciting mission. Join us as a founding strategic partner. This is a decisive moment to have all systems go now if we are to achieve this ambitious global effort for March 8th, 2023.
This unique global gathering is designed for all of us who want to play a significant and consequential role in the world’s renewal.
Working together is our only great hope for the future. Together we have enormous convening power to help change the future course of history for the world’s women and children.
Women’s Day Live is a bold and exciting idea whose time has come. I hope you will join us to help realize this vision. Let’s turn action into impact. The future is in our hands.
"We are at a critical tipping point in our human history. We all need to call on our courage to be fierce defenders of the pillars of democracy and freedom.” - Lili Fournier
Tragically, this dystopian future I predicted has come to pass. As our great hero, Martin Luther King said, “Some people think we are crazy for taking on this fight. But the forces against us are strong and they are determined to stop us. But we are just as determined to go on, non-violently with love, as long as it takes to win our freedom.”
