Announcing Keyholder 2017
An Evening with MJ Hegar

5-8 pm, Tuesday, December 5, 2017
Topfer Theatre at ZACH


The Women’s Fund announces Major MJ Hegar as 2017 Keyholder Keynote Speaker. Hegar is a hero twice over—a Purple Heart-decorated pilot, and the soldier who challenged a discriminatory military policy and won women the right to serve on the front lines for the first time. Hegar is also the author of the best-selling memoir Shoot Like a Girl and the inspiration for a soon-to-be major motion picture.  Hegar believes when women stand up for themselves, our whole community thrives.

Keyholder is an evening to convene and invest in women and children. Through the Women’s Fund, you unlock Austin’s potential because when you support women and their children you strengthen our whole community. Join us to give visibility to issues affecting women and children while also learning about real solutions. You hold the key to lasting change. Be fiercely inspired.

What an amazing event! Incredibly inspiring.
Great job reminding us: If not YOU then who will help women break the cycle of poverty?
Such an inspirational event! Love it and loved seeing so many women that I adore and admire!
