Women and Peace: Women Transcending Borders

When my colleague, Carmen Stevens, and I conducted our generational research about women's philanthropy, we found that peace was the one objective all generations of women wanted.  Thus I wasn't surprised to see the article in the September 3, 2011 New York Times about the formation of a group called Women Transcending Boundaries following 9/11.  The organization was begun so women could better understand each others faiths.  One of the focuses of Women Transcending Boundaries is to organize international dinners to raise money for girls schools in Pakistan.

Just another inspiring example of women coming together to create change and bring about peace.  Further proof of the 6 C's of women's motivations to give: create, change, connect, commit, collaborate, and celebrate.  We surely celebrate Women Transcending Boundaries.
