2009 White House Correspondents Garden Brunch headliners Susan Axelrod (CURE Epilepsy) and Ann Curry (NBC News) led guests in a group tweet for mothers. This year’s brunch will be given in honor of Mothers Day Every Day and CURE Epilepsy.
The Important Dinner for Women isn’t important because of the women who are there (though there were lots of important women there: Queen Rania, Indra Nooyi, Sarah Brown, Ann Curry, Susan Axelrod, Naomi Campbell, Wendi Murdoch, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Tyra Banks … the list goes on), but because of the important cause that brings them together.
Cindy Adams quotes Sarah Brown in her NY Post article:
“Women are more likely to die giving birth than to go to school. Women are considered zero. A woman’s only asset is her body. And each year half a million die in childbirth.”
