TORRANCE, Calif., March 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Toyota has issued three $50,000 grants to women selected as the "Mothers of Invention" at the annual Women in the World summit to reward them for their use of innovation and courage in tackling some of the most pressing problems facing women.  Grants were given to Aseneth Andrews, founder of The Catherine Ferguson Academy for Young Women; Talia Leman, founder of RandomKid.org; and Jessica O. Matthews and Julia Silverman, inventors of the sOccket and co-founders of Uncharted Play.

The summit, hosted by Tina Brown, editor in chief of Newsweek & The Daily Beast and co-sponsored by Toyota, was held at the David H. Koch Theater at New York's Lincoln Center, and featured three days of programming and panels aimed at addressing issues facing girls and women worldwide. Summit participants included Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Christiane Amanpour, Diane von Furstenberg, Barbara Walters, Christine Lagarde, Lauren Bush Lauren, Chelsea Clinton and Tina Brown.

"All of these women have made incredible impacts in their communities and the world using innovation and dedication to support causes that are close to their hearts," said Latondra Newton, Vice President, Toyota Motor North America, Inc.  "The change these women have made in thousands of lives simply through their tenacity and belief in change is remarkable.  Toyota has always been committed to initiatives that touch communities around the world.  This event allows us to show our support in a tangible way to help these women continue the work they're doing."

The grants given to the Mothers of Invention by Toyota aim to bring awareness to the women's innovative programs, as well as help further their objectives and future projects by providing additional funding.
