Feminine Weapon Day 2018
On January 30th we hosted Fifth Annual Feminine Weapon Day Celebrations - simultaneously - in New York City and Los Angeles. Hundreds of change-makers, healers, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists gathered in their respective city for events that included a grounding meditation, live music, expert relationship panel, guided connections and the #ForTheLoveofMen Exhibit.
Net proceeds benefited children of abuse, extreme poverty and trafficking through The Orphaned Starfish Foundation and ARTEAMOR.
