In fiscal year 2018, MMEG awarded 35 grants to women studying in the USA, Canada, South Africa and Latin America. Click on "Grant Recipients" under "What We Do" for the full list of recipients.

In March 2017, the Thread of Life recognized that women are the warp of social fabric in every country. Esther Kisaakye (2005 grantee and current Supreme Court Justice in Uganda) and Laura Balbuena  (2004 grantee and Director of the Gender Institute of Peru) inspired us with presentations on their work. 

In 2016, MMEG celebrated its 35th Anniversary with MMEG's first Grantee Marion Subah and Ingrid Meintjes.
