Bell emphasized the urgency, saying that “less than 1% of global funding goes to women’s organizations in countries experiencing crisis or conflict. This is unacceptable. WPHF is changing that.”
The event also featured two women leaders working on the front lines to build peace and respond to crises in their communities: Hajer Sharif from Libya and Horiyah Mosadiq from Afghanistan.
Bell hosted the gala. Wallis Annenberg, Ellen DeGeneres, Sean HayesAnd Don Ostroffand was supported by Crèmily, Horizon, Activision|Blizzard, Disney, Netflix, Good|Upworthy, BoldHaus, Lafayette 148 and Spindrift.
