A Katten pro bono team comprised of Los Angeles partners David Halberstadter, Tami Sims, and Melanie Tomanov, retired partner Susan Grode, associate Joshua Tate and paralegal Janie Freedman will be recognized by the Feminist Majority Foundation during their 15th Annual Global Women's Rights Awards and Gala on June 27.

The Global Women's Rights Award is presented to select individuals who have greatly contributed to advancing women's rights worldwide and raising awareness for the injustices women face due to their gender. During this year's event, Katten will be honored for their years supporting the Feminist Majority Foundation's publication of Ms. Magazine, marking "50 years of reporting, rebelling and truth-telling."

Susan, a tireless advocate for women's rights, represented the foundation for more than 22 years. As a friend to Gloria Steinem and many other feminist leaders, she became involved with Ms. Magazine in the 1970s. Kathy Spillar, Executive Director of the Feminist Majority Foundation, said the magazine would not exist today without Susan's support.

Over the last 20 years, David has provided pre-publication review and clearance of all intellectual property in the magazine's print issues and certain online content. The group will also be recognized for pro bono work on the forthcoming book, "50 Years of Ms.: The Best of the Pathfinding Magazine That Ignited a Revolution."
