Lara Logan Inspires and Supports Victims and Survivors at SOW 2017

The 20th Anniversary of Speaking of Women was an incredible success thanks to the meaningful and impactful message of our keynote speaker, 60 Minutes Correspondent Lara Logan.

We will long remember Lara’s powerful message to survivors of domestic and sexual violence that “Healing does not mean forgetting.”

CFJ is grateful to the event sponsors, guests, volunteers and honorees, who made this event a truly special one.

CFJ is also pleased to announce that thanks to the dedication and generosity of Speaking of Women’s supporters, we have met our ambitious fundraising goals for this milestone celebration.

CFJ owes a debt of gratitude to Speaking of Women event co-chairs, Sarah Cwikla and Anna Rodrigues, as well as our SOW Planning Committee members, for their tireless dedication in making this event so memorable.

We also offer our thanks to the following:

Title Sponsors People’s United Bank and the Irwin W. and Dorothy M. Nessel Foundation


Jeanne Maglioglio and JoAnn Zimmerman of The Binky Patrol

Honorary Chairperson in Memoriam, the late Mrs. Elizabeth M. Pfriem

To all of you who were with us at The Waterview on Sept. 19 –or were simply with us in spirit—we offer our sincerest thanks for helping us make this event a tremendous success.

We look forward to seeing you at the 21st annual Speaking of Women in 2018.  Stay tuned for details to come.
