Each week Sara Chambers is inspiring creative women to use their collective power for good by highlighting women who care about the world around them.

We’ve all heard the age old question, ‘what do women want,’ but we want to know: what do women care about?

What issues call them to action and what platforms do they scream from the rooftops?

Through these interviews with inspiring women, we get a peek into the humanity that they contribute to and we get access to resources that mobilize us to get involved.

We hope to encourage the next generation of activists and philanthropists so we can all become Chicks Who Give a Hoot.
