Famous women’s rights attorney, Gloria Allred, will be presenting the Shining Spirit Award to this year’s honoree, Loreen Arbus, Founder of The Loreen Arbus Foundation, and the first female Head of Programming for a U.S. network – a feat she accomplished twice – both at Showtime and Lifetime networks.
