The New York Women's Foundation






ALYSSA MILANO, Actress and Activist; HAYLEY & MICHAELS, Sony/ATV Recording Artists and Songwriters                                 

MARY T. BASSETT, MD, MPH, Director of the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, Harvard University; and




New York, NY –  The New York Women’s Foundation’s Radical Generosity Gala will celebrate the anniversary of the Me Too Movement by recognizing actress and activist Alyssa Milano and Sony/ATV recording artists and songwriters Haley & Michaels with awards presented by Tarana Burke, Me Too Movement founder and leader.Mary T. Bassett, MD, MPH, Director of the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University and the co-founders of movie studio Level Forward, Abigail E. DisneyAdrienne BeckerRachel Gould, and Angie G. Wang will be honored as well, for their leadership and contributions to empowering women.

Approximately 300 guests are expected to attend the annual event, which raises funds for The New York Women’s Foundation (The Foundation), a cross-cultural alliance that ignites action and invests in bold, community-led solutions across the city to create an equitable and just future for women and families.


Ana Oliveira, President and CEO of The Foundation, said, “This has been an amazing year for women. Supporters of the ‘Me Too’ movement and similar movements have given us hope that change is finally within reach and the voices of women are being heard.  This year’s Radical Generosity honorees share our deep commitment to social and economic justice, and we are grateful to them for their determination to transform the lives of women, girls and families throughout New York and the country.”


Actress and activist Alyssa Milano uses her voice and influence to advocate for social justice, fairness and equality. A driving force behind the viral movement of women fighting against sexual harassment and assault, she helped propel the spread of the #MeToo hashtag and has been involved in TimesUp since its inception. In addition, Ms. Milano is one of the founders of NoRA, a coalition dedicated to combatting the NRA money in political campaigns, on the national advisory board of the ERA Coalition, and has been a UNICEF National Ambassador for the last 15 years.


Nashville-based country duo Haley & Michaels, Sony/ATV recording artists and songwriters, pledged support of the #MeToo movement with their heartfelt song, “Me Too,” assuring women and men everywhere that they’re not alone. Collaborating with Me Too Movement Founder, Tarana Burke, the song was featured in TIME and took them to #1 on County Music Television (CMT) for two weeks in 2017. Haley and Michaels will perform “Me Too” at this year’s gala.


With more than 30 years of experience in public health, Mary T. Bassett, MD, MPH, Director of the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University, has dedicated her career to advancing health equity in both New York and abroad. Prior to her current role, Dr. Basset served as Commissioner of Health and Mental Hygiene for New York City and served previously as its Deputy Commission of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. She has also served as Associate Director of Health Equity at the Rockefeller Foundation’s South Africa Office.


The start-up studio Level Forward, formed by philanthropist and filmmaker Abigail Disney and Killer Content Inc.’s co-founders Adrienne BeckerRachel Gould, and Angie G. Wang, aims to support projects that are driven by women and persons of color.  The founders are committed to innovation and inclusion throughout all creative and business processes. In early 2018, Level Forward was one of the women-led organizations that bid to purchase Weinstein Co. after the company went bankrupt due to sexual assault and harassment allegations against co-founder Harvey Weinstein.


The New York Women’s Foundation is the largest women’s grant making fund in the nation.


Earlier this year, the New York Women’s Foundation, in partnership with Tarana Burke, announced a fund to support the Me Too Movement and organization working to end sexual violence. The Fund is dedicated to addressing the needs of cis and trans activists of color working in community-based organizations focused on preventing and ending sexual violence in underinvested communities at the individual, community and systemic level. The Foundation has seeded the fund with $1 million and will seek additional significant philanthropic investment.


The event’s co-chairs are Jean Shafiroff and Lola C. West.


The cocktail reception begins at 6:30 PM. The dinner and program will begin promptly at 7:30 PM. There will be a live performance by Hayley & Michaels and a silent auction throughout the event.


Tickets may be purchased here. For more information, call 212-763-8589 or email
