For 25 years, Gloria Steinem and Caroline Hirsch have co-hosted the Ms. Foundation Comedy Night at the legendary Carolines on Broadway in Times Square. There’s been so much happening this year, good and bad, but laughter is the best medicine - and sometimes, you just gotta laugh! This event is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with some of the funniest feminist comedians out there and make a difference in the lives of women and girls.
Did you know that women and girls of color only get a tiny fraction of all the money donated each year? Women and girls of color have been at the forefront of social progress and the Ms. Foundation is changing that for the good of us all.
Proceeds will go to lift up, support, and fund grassroots organizations led by and for women, girls, and nonbinary folks who are working 24/7 in communities across the country to ensure that we achieve a true democracy that works for all.
