The New York Women’s Foundation (a cross-cultural alliance of women, serving as a force for change) hosted its fall dinner, Stepping Out & Stepping Up, honoring Nicholas Kristof, Elizabeth and Herbert Sturz, and Sheryl WuDunn.

The evening’s attendees included Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who arrived to support his girlfriend and co-chair, Diana Taylor, Catherine Malandrino, Muffie Potter Aston, Sharon Bush, Somers and Jonathan Farkas, Debbie Bancroft, and Jean Shafiroff who also co-chaired the night’s festivities held at Gotham Hall. The evening culminated with an over-the-top performance by nine-time Grammy award-winning songstress Mary J. Blige, who crooned her hit, “No More Drama,” and her collaboration of “One” by U2.
