This season, we celebrate the strength and fearlessness of inspiring, trailblazing women leading extraordinary lives.

Behind every unordinary woman are countless women who have encouraged her along the way.

Inspired by our seasonal muse, the art patron and iconoclast Peggy Guggenheim, we’re honoring the #UnordinaryWomen who inspire us each and every day. Learn how you can share about an unordinary woman who inspires you and help raise money for an amazing cause, She’s the First.
