Style & Substance: In Conversation with
Kelly Rutherford and Liz Dennery Sanders

Liz and Kelly RutherfordYou may know her as Lily van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl, or Megan Lewis from Melrose Place, but to me, Kelly Rutherford is a dear friend, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and yes, a widely admired and adored actress.

One of the things that always stood out to me about Kelly is her love for and support of other women and girls – a passion we share. We met more than a decade ago when we were both involved with Step Up, an organization that helps girls in under-resourced communities fulfill their potential through after school programming to become confident, college-bound and career ready. A fierce advocate for human rights and the well-being of women and girls globally, Kelly has also been involved with Girls Inc., Global Fund for Women and UN Women for Peace.

When Kelly found out that I had written a book to help women connect to their voices, step into their power and be more successful, in true best friend fashion, she offered to do a sit-down interview with me so that we could get this information to as many people as possible.

Kelly has a big platform and wants to use it for good.

We sat in my living room, Oprah-style, and dished on branding, feminism, the power of intention, and much, much more.
