The Study of Women and Philanthropy Just Got a Major Boost. Here’s Why That Matters – Inside Philanthropy

Awareness has been developing for years about the synergy between women and philanthropy, but there are a lot of unanswered questions in this area—questions that are becoming more important as women wield greater economic power in their own right, but also play an increasingly active role in shaping family philanthropy.

At Inside Philanthropy, we’ve been keenly focused on the role of women in philanthropy since we first started publishing two years ago. One of our first major features looked at the 15 Most Powerful Women in U.S. Philanthropy, many of whom are spouses of business leaders, but we’ve since written about a number of independently wealthy women who have turned to philanthropy in a big way, like Lyda Hill. And we’ve reported on the rising power of women philanthropy networks, such as Women Moving Millions.
