#SheInspiresMe Auction 2018

In November 2018, Gillian gave the opening remarks at our #SheInspiresMe Auction reception, hosted by Sotheby’s. She also generously donated two lots to the auction.



A world that does not respect women’s power does not respect women. But when we seize our power, we reclaim our rights, protect and liberate one another, and end injustice.

Stand up, speak out, and support women.
