Mariane Pearl to Launch Global News Site for Women, Next Week

CANNES - Mariane Pearl,  who is spearheading a global advocacy group for woman called Chime for Change, will launch a global news site about women with correspondents from locations around the globe, she says in this interview with Beet.TV.  She will serve as managing editor.

She says that the organization is growing quickly and raised more that $4 million in a star-studded benefit gala featuring Beyonce in New York earlier this month.  The organization and the news operation is funded by fashion house Gucci.

We spoke with her on Sunday after her panel about women and media.
