Philanthropy | Dame Elisabeth Murdoch

Philanthropy | Dame Elisabeth Murdoch: "Let's face it, nobody uses the word philanthropy in everyday conversation. If you do, either you are a philanthropist, you work for a philanthropist, or you're trying to impress people, and I know for a fact that doesn't work.

In Monday's Age, Gabriella Coslovich profiled the soon-to-be-launched Women Mobilising Millions campaign. Hosted by the Australian Women Donors Network, the campaign peddles the important message that philanthropy needs to focus more upon women and girls. As Coslovich rightly says: ''You really couldn't get more provocative.'' Why should women and girls be singled out?"
