shments as a founding mother of the Ms. Foundation and the contemporary women's movement," says Sara K. Gould. "For decades, Gloria has inspired countless women across race and class to let loose their rebellious, activist selves. Meanwhile, Gloria draws her own inspiration from women organizers who are the experts on their own lives and whose vision and solutions hold the power to transform society and benefit us all. Tonight, in Gloria's name, we honor three of these women as well as an amazing donor activist and a bold corporate foundation."

The 2009 Women of Vision Awardees are:

Naina Khanna, Director of Policy and Community Organizing at Women Organized to Respond to Life-threatening Disease (WORLD). Naina supports, educates and mobilizes women living with and affected by HIV/AIDS to advocate for policy change that meets their unique and, often, unmet needs.

Gina Womack, Director and Co-Founder of Families and Friends of Louisiana's Incarcerated Children (FFLIC).
