Transforming Raw Spaces to Reflect a Powerful Brand.


The 2014 Girls Write Now Awards was an annual benefit held at the legendary Bowery Hotel. More than 200 guests joined for a cocktail reception, silent auction, live photo booth, and seated program honoring Gloria Steinem, Dawn L. Davis, and Roberta Kaplan. 

On International Day of the Girl 2014, Girls Write Now hosted a moderated panel with an evening complete with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and an inspiring panel of women leaders. Exploring the intersection of writing and feminism, panelists delved into questions as timeless as writing’s power of catharsis and as topical as the role of men in the movement.
