Women’s Project

     24th Annual Women of Achievement Awards Gala
 

 

 

March 2nd 2009. New York City. The Women’s Project chose to honor the achievements of a distinguished group of women.
Lucia Hwong Gordon, Composer and Instrumentalist; Estelle Parsons, Actor and Director; Susan K. Reed, Editor-in Chief of “O”, The Oprah Magazine; and Susan Sobbett, President American Express OPEN. These women were selected because of the significant contributions they have made and continue to make in their chosen fields.

 

The host for the evening was Diana Williams, award winning reporter and anchor for Eyewitness News at 5:00pm. Esteemed presenters of the Honoree’s Awards were: B.D. Wong; actor of screen and stage, currently in his 9th season of Law & Order’s SVU, Arthur Penn; Director of such notable films as Bonnie & Clyde, The Miracle Worker, and Alice’s Restaurant, Serene Jones; the sixteenth president of Union Theological Seminary, and the first female president in the Seminary’s 172-year history, and Nell Merlino; President and CEO of Count Me In for Women’s Economic Independence. Ms Merlino is the creator of, Take Our Daughters to Work Day.

 

Honoree, Susan K. Reed thanked Julia Miles who strarted the Women’s Project in 1978 and spoke of the important need for current female artists to mentor the next generation of women.

Honoree, Susan Sabbott shared her realization, “your efforts change the lives not only of the artist but the audiences.” Honoree, Estelle Parsons spoke of having known a world when there was no Women’s Project. She joked, “I chose acting over politics and law because I wanted a level playing field.”  Honoree, Lucia Hwong Gordon spoke of how greatly honored she was to be chosen by
 the Women’s Project stating that Tina Chen got her involved 10 years ago. Lucia said. “It is enlightening to support voices of women who shine the light on the issues of the world, that is why we are all here!”

 

I had a lovely time at the event and was very humbled by the brilliance of many leaders I had the honor of meeting. I am particularly honored to know Lucia Hwong Gordon. We met at a friends luncheon in the Hamptons several years ago. She has chaired and supported many philanthropic events, managed to compose music and be a loving mother to her beautiful twin daughters and a supportive wife to her dear husband Peter. Lucia has a very peaceful yet tireless energy. Time Magazine and the New York Times have honored Lucia by including her in a select group of America’s exceptional new composers. Her music for theatre includes the scores for the Tony Award winning Broadway production of M. Butterfly. It is said that Ms. Hwong’s music for television and film underscores social and political concerns such as Vietnam War Story/HBO, Hiroshima/NBC and many more.

 

MISSION:

Now under the leadership of Julie Crosby, Producing Artistic Director, Women's Project remains devoted to its mission of producing and promoting theater created by women. To that end, we:

women’s perspectives on a wide variety of political, social, international, religious, and cultural topics
