#GatesSocial: The Impact of Women's Stories

March 08, 2014

We had the honor of hosting a group of women and girl advocates at the Gates Foundation on Friday, March 7, in honor of International Women's Day. The event was our first social media meetup--all of the attendees are active on Twitter and follow our social media accounts.

A big thread through the event was the power of women's stories to inspire people to take action and get behind initiatives that support women and girls. Several of the attendees noted that social media is one way we can amplify those stories and help them reach new ears. 

A recap of the day's conversation follows. Let us know in the comments what you think about the idea that a woman's story can help change the world.
