The Women’s Center welcomes Dylan Farrow as the keynote speaker for our 2022 EmPower Luncheon! This event honors the courageous voices of survivors, those who advocate for survivors, and those who speak out to affect change. Survivor, activist, and change-maker, Farrow is all three.
Dylan Farrow is an author, mother, activist, and the survivor at the heart of the Emmy-nominated docuseries, Allen v. Farrow. She has written about her story in essays for the New York Times and Los Angeles Times. She has also spoken out in interviews for CBS This Morning and The Drew Barrymore Show. Dylan is the author of Hush and the upcoming sequel, Veil, and continues to advocate for survivors of sexual abuse; and regularly works with the nonprofit organization Jane Doe No More. She recently helped pass SB 654 in California, which prevents unsupervised visitation with parents with a history of abuse and creates a safe process for child testimony in custody disputes.
This year’s event will be on Wednesday, April 27 (Denim Day), at the Brookfield Convention Center. It will bring together more than 900 Southeastern Wisconsin’s individuals, companies, community influencers, and business leaders.
Doors open at 11:00 am for networking, online auction, and raffle, then lunch begins at noon, followed by the keynote presentation from Dylan Farrow.
All proceeds from this event directly benefit adult and child survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence, child abuse, and trafficking through The Women’s Center’s life-saving and life-changing programs and services. Thousands of people find safety, shelter, and support through our doors each year. We are the only agency of our kind in Waukesha County, and we are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
