Real Stories. Real Change. 


Keyholder is the biggest night of the year. It’s where we come together as storytellers. Where stories of the change-makers, the disrupters, and the influencers are told. We fill the Ohio Theatre with 2,500 of us connected, ignited and fiercely committed to gender equality.  

This year two powerful storyteller swill take the Keyholder stage. Geena Davis and Roxane Gay will share in an open and authentic conversation about their own experiences, feminism, the portrayal of women in media and culture, how women can use their voices, and why it matters that they do.  

An Academy-Award winning actor and advocate GEENA DAVIS has made a career of championing dynamic female roles in Hollywood. As the founder of The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, she is a groundbreaker, shaking up the ratio of gender in media. 

Best-selling author, professor, and columnist, ROXANE GAY is a cultural critic whose writing is unmatched, and storytelling is widely revered. Through her no-holds-barred exploration of feminism, identity, and social criticism, she brilliantly examines issues effecting women and girls and the intersections between race, gender, and popular culture and politics. Roxane is the author of New York Times bestselling books Hunger and Bad Feminist, among others. 

We, The Women’s Fund, are committed to connecting those who share a passion for the causes that impact women and girls.  

We hope you’ll join us on May 16th to be on the frontlines of lasting social change.
