About The Event
Club Member Elizabeth Filippouli is a journalist, author and executive. Her early career in print and broadcast journalism at Greek and international media was prelude to over a decade of activism and entrepreneurship. She is the founder and CEO of Global Thinkers Forum (GTF) and of Athena40, an SDG 5 initiative, promoting women in leadership.
For this event, Elizabeth will present her new book From Women to the World – Letters for a New Century, which brings together letters from a global group of accomplished women - politicians, royalty, actors, writers, activists and more – every one addressed to a woman who means something to each of them. Acclaimed writer Elif Shafak writes a letter to Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand after the Christchurch attack. Actress Yasmine AlMassri pens a poem about war for her mother. Activist and TV presenter June Sarpong addresses designer Diane Von Furstenberg. Each letter based on these women's personal histories and experiences, drawing attention to social issues such as homelessness, war, LGBT activism, mental health care or the plight of international refugees.
