Cue Raheem DeVaughn’s 2005 single "Woman," or his latest "Queen!"
It was all about women last night during the 4th Annual WEEN Awards (Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network), which celebrates the outstanding accomplishments of women in various areas of business and philanthropy. Hosted by WEEN co-founder Valeisha Butterfield-Jones & co-host Shannon Lanier, and sponsored by beauty brand Carol's Daughter, over 300 influencers gathered at New York's Helen Mills event space to honor seven powerful women: Carol's Daughter founder/CEO Lisa Price, hip-hop legend MC Lyte, financial expert Lynn Richardson, radio personality Angela Yee, R&B artist Sevyn Streeter, fitness mogul Jeanette Jenkins and filmmaker/artist Vashtie Kola.
The event was both empowering and inspirational to many. Other well-known attendees included R&B singers Justine Skye, Africa Miranda and Bridget Kelly; Monami Entertainment CEO Mona Scott-Young, and more.
