Women of the World’s Fashion Show was recently featured on PBS Utah’s “This is Utah” program.

This video captures the intelligence and effort of each of the women involved with Women of the World’s Fashion Show, it shows the vast diversity and beauty of the cultures that make up the community of forcibly displaced women, and it profiles the hope of our new neighbors working toward their dreams.

In 2020, our Fashion Show was virtual but still had the energy and gracefulness of previous years thanks to the strong women that told their stories and their aspirations to our online audience. Enjoy some of these videos below...

Women of the World is a tax-exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) that publishes its financials and governance to Guidestar each year.

 

Donating to Women of the World’s programs both increases the earnings and decreases expenses for forcibly displaced women just getting started after years of trauma. Our new neighbors need your help to succeed in their new home.
