Three Feminist Artists Shaping History

As women are dominating the year, we can’t help but get excited. We’ve covered musicians to entrepreneurs and all the in between. This week, we’d like to take a look at three highly notable feminist artists who have made a dent in history with their works. At a time when gender equality is on the rise and power moves are being made, art is one of the most celebrated yet often underrated ways we, as women, have to fight back.

Gelila Bekele talks with Catt about her heart, her love and her passion for humanitarian work.

I was fortunate to meet this beautiful humanitarian, Gelila Bekele, when I was in New York recently.  What a light she is... and what wonderful work she is doing.  At 31 years she's founded 80 schools in Ethiopa.  And she is sure to help us understand that the founding is just the beginning.  It's the sustaining that makes true impact.

When I told her about our work with Women Like Us...she totally got it.  We can't just drop in and do a little...we stick with the women we support and do what we can.  Our support is ongoing...that's how you get it done, girls!

My daughter Catt sat down for a full interview, you can read it HERE on The Catt Walk.
