“The Billie and FSWW led by Garland Lee Thompson, Jr. came together to create 50in50 as a platform for agency and empowerment so that any woman or girl can share her story, regardless of class, race, age, ability, gender identity, nationality, and sexual orientation,” said Dr. Indira Etwaroo, Executive Director, BHT. “We received hundreds of profound submissions from women from across the globe. It is not lost on us that 50in50 has become increasingly meaningful, as women continue to grapple with historical injustices and social norms that would oppress, rather than liberate. We hope you will find these stories as moving, as we did."
