Women are having a bigger impact on our world than ever. Empowering women to start their own business has defined the legacy of “Tortas Ines Rosales” who generously sponsored the VIP area for the “Recipe for Empowerment,” our gala launch event in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 22.
The story of Inés Rosales begins in Castilleja de la Cuesta, a small town in Spain. In 1910, Inés Rosales Cabell created  sweet olive oil torta (a flat, round cake) in her kitchen at home using an old family recipe to support her family. With the help of other women from the area, she began to sell her “tortas” at the old train station in Seville. The tortas have become an iconic treat for many generations throughout Spain and the world. 
Today, the “tortas” are still made by hand, and the work is still performed by local village women with exactly the same recipe.
