IWF Remembers South Africa Member Vuyokazi Felicity Mahlati

The IWF community mourns the passing of IWF South Africa member Dr Vuyokazi Mahlati, a champion for equality, an entrepreneur, mentor and inspiration to many.

Dr Vuyo Mahlati was passionate about women’s issues and leadership development. IWF South Africa was founded 19 years ago when its patron, Mrs Zanele Mbeki, together with a group of women leaders, set up a South African chapter of the IWF. Vuyo was determined to work with her forum sisters to make it a success, remaining true to the forum’s mission throughout her life. She was an inspiring and unifying force, and her impact on the forum will be felt for years to come.

The Fight for Justice for Women: A Conversation with Attorney Gloria Allred

On September 29th, IWF heard from esteemed women’s rights icon and IWF Southern California member, attorney Gloria Allred, in a special session highlighting the issue of violence against women, impacting women globally.

Ms. Allred has dedicated her life to pursuing equal justice under the law for all Americans no matter their gender, race, age, sexual orientation or disability.

Her law firm has won new rights for women and minorities and hundreds of millions of dollars for victims of violence against women.

She will discuss the Harvey Weinstein case, the case of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, Bill Cosby, R. Kelly, Cuba Gooding Jr., and the sexual harassment case against billionaire, Alki David, which her law firm won last year resulting in a verdict of $58,250,000 for one victim of sexual harassment.
