Introducing the Extra-Ordinary Women Podcast
For our inaugural podcast episode, we interviewed Latanya Mapp Frett, President and CEO of Global Fund for Women (GFW).

Latanya discusses her years of experience supporting grassroots organizations to end civil war in Liberia, provide aid to women's education in Afghanistan and Iran, and assist women's groups in Ukraine.
Play now to hear about her new book, The Everyday Feminist: The Key to Sustainable Social Impact-Driving Movements We Need Now More than Ever, as well as GFW's Emmy-nominated film series Fundamental: Gender Justice: No Exceptions.
