Philanthropic Women Helping Women

March is Women’s History Month, which seems like the perfect time to highlight leading women who put their money behind women’s causes. With 61% of wealth now in the hands of women, and the majority of the world’s poor being women, it makes sense that wealthy women are giving powerfully.
