On the evening of October 30, the Institute for Women’s Policy Research held a reception and theater night in New York City. The reception was well attended and the room was abuzz with interesting conversation.
A brief program addressed the impacts of IWPR’s work and the implications of the financial crisis and election for U.S. women. Erica Hunt, President of the 21st Century Foundation, discussed the impact IWPR’s report Black Girls in New York City: Untold Strength and Resilience had on the foundation’s decision to institutionalize its Giving Circle by creating a fund for Black girls.
Guests then proceeded to the Cort Theatre for a performance of The 39 Steps, a hilarious stage adaptation of Hitchock's masterpiece and winner of two Tony Awards.
