The Women’s Fund of Greater Milwaukee spoke with CBS 58 about what impact it may have on girls and women across the nation.
“We celebrate women whose shoulders we stand on and are blazing trails,” Women’s Fund of Greater Milwaukee Board Chair Marilka Velez said.
The Women’s Fund of Greater Milwaukee believes women must have economic equity, be able to control their own destiny and hold positions of power in the public and private sectors.
“These milestones are important for today’s women, for tomorrow’s women, for today’s girls, it’s such an important milestone,” Women’s Fund of Greater Milwaukee Executive Director Lisa Attonito said. “It’s difficult to really quantify what this is going to do for women, nationally or internationally for that matter, because it’s a ripple effect, it’s inspiration, a true demonstration of what women can do.”
