The readers of MySavvySisters.Com were asked to select a representative from among the women honored as My Savvy Sister of The Week during our last fiscal year. The women honored ranged from New York Times best selling authors to women’s advocates, entrepreneurs and television stars.
The readers selected Sikivu Hutchinson as the very first winner of My Savvy Sister of the Year.
Sikivu lives in Los Angeles, California and is the Senior Intergroup Specialist of the L.A. County Human Relations Commission.
She is the author of Moral Combat: Black Atheists, Gender Politics, and the Values Wars. She founded the Women’s Leadership Project (WLP), a South L.A.-based feminist mentoring and social justice advocacy program for high school girls of color. The WLP trains young women to advocate for gender justice in their school-communities around anti-violence, reproductive justice, media representation, undocumented student rights, college access and LGBTQ rights.
