How would you spend $450 million?
Vice President and Director for External Affairs Marjorie Newman-Williams explains
Earlier this month, a Leonardo da Vinci painting—believed to be his last remaining in private hands—sold for $450 million, shattering records in the art community.
In a piece for art education website Artsy, MSI’s Vice President and Director for External Affairs Marjorie Newman-Williams explains that $450 million is enough to provide 78 million women with contraception for at least one year.
Following President Trump’s reinstatement of the Global Gag Rule in January, Marie Stopes International faces a $30 million annual funding gap because we believe in a woman’s right to choose. $450 million could fill that gap 15 times over, giving millions more women the ability to plan their families and futures.
