#GirlHero Awards


Sunday, October 13, 2019

Beverly Wilshire Hotel

In celebration of International Day of the Girl, the second annual Girl Up #GirlHero Awards will take place on Sunday, October 13th 2019 in Beverly Hills, CA. Once again, we will bring together Hollywood elite, inspiring women and men, and young women activists to celebrate what happens when we stand together to advance gender equality.

This year’s luncheon – emceed by Julianne Hough – will honor Cara Delevingne, Kate Hudson, Jameela Jamil and our own Girl Up girl changemakers.  This is a follow-up to last year’s powerful sold-out event as we recognize and pay tribute to even more of our feminist heroes!
